BAKERSFIELD – Man bites dog – yes it’s true. Here’s the background of the story.
A call came in to the KCSO about a grand theft auto on August 21 near midnight. The location was the 2100 block of Lantana Way.
Before long, CHP saw the stolen vehicle “driving near Ming Avenue and Stine Road.” However, the vehicle continued on its way, driven by 41-year-old Jarred Allen.
Allen ended his ride at the Emergency Room entrance of the San Joaquin Community Hospital. But he did not get out of his vehicle, at first.
As a result, officers pulled him out of the vehicle, with the help of an unnamed K-9.
Allen tried to fight with the K-9, putting him in a choke-hold and then biting the dog under his left eye.
The K-9’s fellow officers forcefully stopped Allen from further assaulting the dog.
The suspects charges include –
- grand theft auto;
- possession of stolen property;
- resisting arrest;
- battery on a peace officer.
While the K-9 may need to go to a vet for its cut, Allen went to jail.
