A Prince George's County police officer was described as in good condition yesterday after being dragged 60 feet along Chillum Road Monday by a motorist who allegedly was trying to elude arrest, police said.

They said Officer Deborah Linnell, 28, a 2 1/2-year member of the force, was admitted to Prince George's General Hospital with cuts and bruises.

Linnell had stopped a motorist, identified as McKinley Hunter Jr., 36, of the 2400 block of Chapman Road, Adelphi, because, she said, she recognized him as a man named in a warrant alleging breaking and entering, police said.

As they were talking in the 1500 block of Chillum Road about 8:30 p.m., Hunter returned to his car and tried to leave, police said. When Linnell tried to stop him, they said, Hunter allegedly grabbed the officer's arm and drove off.

Hunter was arrested at his home, police said, and charged with assault with intent to murder. Officer Dragged 60 Feet by Car
