Police stopped the vehicle and, as the occupants of the car were being detained, the driver struggled with officers. One of the officers was injured during the struggle.
Morse said the injury was not life-threatening. The officer was transported to an area hospital for treatment.
The suspect was taken into custody without further incident.
