A man suspected of pulling a gun on someone and led Mount Pleasant police on a car chase Thursday was apprehended by Racine County Sheriff’s K9 Nox.
According to the Racine Police K-9 Unit Facebook page, MPPD were in pursuit of a man who threatened someone with a gun. The man took off in his car, leading officers on a chase.
The man unexpectedly bailed out of his vehicle and ran into a local cemetery, and Racine County Sheriff’s K9 Nox and his handler were called in to find the suspect.
After Nox lead his handler to where the suspect was located, the man was ordered to show his hands and failed to comply. As a result, Nox was deployed to take the man down, biting him near his shoulder and leaving a puncture wound under the man’s arm.
The suspect was taken into custody without further incident, treated for the dog bite and released from Wheaton Franciscan St. Mary’s. He was transported to the Racine County Jail and is expected to face charges.
