A resident of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, captured video of a K-9 unit apprehending a suspect who had been accused of choking his girlfriend.
The video shows 27 year-old Dylan Ites being apprehended by officers and bit by the K-9. He was on the run from police after a 911 call from a woman who said he had allegedly strangled her earlier in the day. Officers responded and found marks around her neck and Ites was gone.
While the video looks bad, Sioux Falls Police Seargent Michael Olson told KSFY News that what you see in the video is only one piece of the story.
Sioux Falls police spokesman Sam Clemens defended the police dog attack, saying, “The K-9 did what it was supposed to do. The guy had been given many instructions to lay down or he was going to be bit.”
