A Lake City man is behind bars tonight after allegedly beating and dragging a passenger in his car by her hair while the vehicle was moving.

Ryan Allen is facing several charges tonight after the incident earlier today. Pennsylvania State Police say the 27-year-old was arguing in the car with a female passenger as he drove east on Route 5. He allegedly chocked the victim and beat her over the head. She tried to escape while the car was moving and Allen is accused of grabbing her by her hair, dragging her along the road as he held on to her hair.

Allen was charged with aggravated assault and several other charges. He remains in the Erie County jail tonight on five thousand dollars bond.
