Default Police K9 dog bites you - you punch it - battery charge?

C/N: Drunk teen flees police and police dog bites his leg. He punches the police dog who bit him and gets away. Police want to charge him with battery to a police canine.

Resisting arrest and fighting a human officer - I can see how that is a crime.

If a police dog bites you, and then you punch it that doesn't seem as straight forward to me. Being basically attacked by an animal may trigger a different instinctual reaction than getting in a fight with a human...



Police: Driver punches out police dog while fleeing

Police are looking for Northwest Indiana teen who allegedly punched a police dog while fleeing on foot from a traffic stop that ended in alcohol-related charges for five of his passengers.

The 17-year-old driver got away after he struck a police dog in the head numerous times -- which will likely result in battery charges.

However his friends, including one who told police he met the driver while they were both being held at the Juvenile Detention Center in Valparaiso, willingly gave up his name and cell phone number.


On Tuesday evening, the group had been drinking in Gary before getting into the car owned by one of the arrested youth's parents.


The 17-year-old volunteered to drive even though he does not have a driver's license, according to the police report.


An officer stopped the beige 1999 GMC Yukon SUV around 1:50 a.m. Wednesday after seeing it weaving along Dombey Road and Central Avenue in Portage.


He had the driver get out of the vehicle but, as his attention was drawn to the passengers, the driver ran south on Brown Street and jumped a chain-link fence.


The officer's canine, Monty, followed the teen over the metal fence and bit his leg as he attempted to climb a wood fence in the back yard.


The teen then started punching the dog in the face until it let go, and the teen was able to get over the fence and escape.


His passengers were arrested.


Keith Johnson, 18, of Gary, is charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor, intoxication and underage drinking.


Lacey Gorski, 23, of Portage, who allegedly bought the alcohol, was arrested for contributing to the delinquency of a minor and public intoxication.


A 16-year-old Portage boy was charged with underage drinking, and a 16-year-old Union Township girl and a 17-year-old rural Valparaiso girl were arrested for public intoxication and underage drinking.


The teens were released to their parents.


Meanwhile, police reached the suspected driver's mother, who reportedly said she thought her son was in bed but then found he was gone. She said he has been going through drug court and is almost done, according to the report.


When the driver is found, he is expected to be charged with fleeing law enforcement and battery to a police canine, along with other possible charges

So, the cops should just get police tigers, or bears?

Turnabout is fair play. If a cop bit you, it'd be abuse.

It seems irresponsible on the part of the cop to let the dog do that and get in danger.

Just tell the dog "halt!" and it will stop for you to get away.

I can't believe the cops are even considering it. Let me rephrase that...I can't believe they didn't just get the warrant for it. That's what I would have done. In GA there are special statutes for assault of K9s.

I think I would like to take on a police dog in one of those training suits.

I always see the guy the dog is attacking go down like a chump.

I think I could shake the dog off and wrestle it to submission.

but again, only if I had that full body suit.

A drunk kid running away is not a reason to release a police dog on him.

This happened to a friend of mine. True story, bro. They will charge him with assaulting an officer, and it will stick. But, he is 17, so as long as this is his first offense, it's likely nothing "real" will happen so long as he gets his **** together.

The only thing that dog did wrong was that it didn't bite him in the throat for driving drunk with five passengers. I wish that dog ripped his throat out.

I hope they hand cuff him to a wall in an interrogation room, and then throw that dog back in there to exact revenge.

Drunk "Driver" kid. Don't run from the Police and you won't get bit by a police dog.

You can be charged with that for touching the dog in any way pretty much.
