Calif. Man Injures Police Dog During Pursuit

September 12, 2012  | 

A probationer repeatedly slammed the head of a Corona (Calif.) Police Department K-9 with a car door during a foot pursuit on Saturday.

Timothy Edward Busby, 41, a probationer, was booked into the Presley Detention Center in Riverside for investigation of reckless driving while evading a peace officer, second-degree burglary, harming a dog used by a police officer and probation violation, reports the Riverside Press Enterprise.

Officers initiated a pursuit of Busby from a shopping center that reached speeds exceeding 100 mph on Highway 91. Officers caught up with Busby after he crashed his car. A K-9 latched onto Busby, who dragged the dog to his vehicle, where he assaulted it. The dog is expected to recover.

I hope the K-9 has a speeding recovery. My K-9 GSD would have latched onto and taught him respect for all K-9's.

Hard headed and sometimes hard to train, not tomention hard to get a quality example, but there are advantages to Rottweilers. :-)

Doug-Having raised and owned Rotts for years you are so right.

How about slamming the suspects head in a door

@kal - I agree absolutely.

It's a shame the crash didn't take the suspect out. Good thing Rotties are so hard-headed :)

There is a misprint in thr article "THE K-9 DOG WAS NOT INJURED THAT'S WHY THE SUSPECT WAS CHARGED WITH A MISDEMEANOR. I RESEARCHED IT HAD THE DOG BEEN INJURED SUSPECT WOULD HAVE BEEN CHARGED WITH A FELONY WHICH IS A VIOLENT CRIME STRIKEABLE OFFENSE. I KNOW SOME OF YOU ARE LAW ENFORCEMENT READ THE POLICE REPORT

@ April Rae .. The suspect was charged with a felony against the K9 and pled guilty to it; PC 600(A).
