Suspect Nearly Drowns Orlando Police Dog

August 06, 2013  | 

A burglary suspect attempted to drown an Orlando Police K-9 after the dog followed him into a swampy area near the Audubon Park neighborhood.

Seabee, a two-year-old German shepherd, scaled an 8-foot barbed-wire fence and sprinted through thick brush and black muck to chase down 18-year-old Landon Barnes, reports the Orlando Sentinel.

When Barnes entered dark water, Seabee followed him. Barnes then attacked the dog, dunking Seabee's head into the water and forcing thick, mucky water into the dog's lungs. Seabee was able to get away, but began to convulse after leaving the water.

Barnes has been booked on charges of burglary, resisting an officer with violence and injuring a police dog.

People are just not ware of the sheer strength that police dogs have! It's amazing that people try and resist against them!
