Man nicked for bit­ing cop dog

Midweek Sport - - THURSDAY AUG 9 -

A MAN has been ar­rested for an al­leged as­sault -- on a po­lice dog.

Bran­don Shaw, 21, was nicked af­ter be­ing chased by cops on sus­pi­cion of car theft.

A po­lice of­fi­cer warned him to get on the ground or he’d set his dog Blek loose on him.

Shaw ran and tried to jump a four-foot-high fence, but fell and the dog, re­leased by the cop, caught up him as he at­tempted to gather him­self.

Po­lice say Shaw punched the dog, grabbed its ears and ap­peared to bite it on the head.

He also struck the dog on the muz­zle be­fore run­ning away, es­cap­ing down an alley in Su­pe­rior, Wis­con­sin, but was later ar­rested in nearby Du­luth.

Shaw faces charges of harass­ment of po­lice and caus­ing in­jury to an­i­mals and faces three years’ jail.
