A Boston man state police say dragged a trooper with his vehicle while fleeing a traffic stop has been tracked down and charged with attempted murder.

Dr. Christopher Kwolek, chair of surgery at Newton Wellesley Hospital, expressed concern over the drastic decrease in patients who need emergency care amid the coronavirus crisis for conditions like stroke, heart attack and infections.

State police say 32-year-old Claude Remy was arrested Wednesday in Framingham after investigators found out he may be hiding at an address there.

Police were looking for Remy because they say he fled a traffic stop on Route 140 in Taunton on Tuesday night, in the process dragging a trooper a short distance. The trooper was not seriously hurt.

Remy was held on $75,000 bail on attempted murder and several other charges.
