A Porter Ranch man pleaded no contest today to driving his SUV away while an LAPD officer had his hand on the steering wheel, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced.

Grant Anthony Muldrow, 22, was immediately sentenced to seven years in state prison after he pleaded to one felony count of assaulting a police officer causing great bodily injury, said Deputy District Attorney Garrett Dameron with the Crimes Against Peace Officers Section.

Muldrow admitted being the driver of an SUV that took off when the LAPD narcotics officer tried to make an arrest on Jan. 15, 2015, in Granada Hills.

With the officer holding onto the car, Muldrow reached speeds of up to 45 mph before crashing into a tree and fence, the prosecutor said. The officer suffered several broken bones.

The Los Angeles Police Department investigated case PA082817.
