Police said Friday that two undercover officers who were hurt during a traffic stop had been released from the hospital, and a man charged in the incident has been moved from a hospital to the Durham County Jail.
Investigators charged Antonio Levon Turrentine, 36, of Durham with three counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, two counts of felony hit-and-run and one count of resisting, delaying and obstructing an officer.
Emergency workers transported Turrentine to the hospital for treatment of injuries, and he was later released and moved to the jail, Kammie Michael, a police spokeswoman reported.
The two officers were taken to a hospital for treatment, and both had been released by Friday morning, Michael reported.

It was about 3:45 p.m. when two plainclothes officers attempted to make a traffic stop in the 4300 block of N.C. 55, near Meridian Parkway, Michael reported.
Investigators have accused Turrentine of driving away during the stop, dragging one of the officers, Michael reported.
Police officials did not say how the second officer was injured, but that officer was also taken to the hospital “to be checked out,” Michael reported.
