A man from New Hampshire bit a police dog, according to a report last June 24.
Authorities said the man was wanted on a domestic assault charge and was acting erratically. When he was caught up in a Manchester Hotel room, he grappled with and bit the dog.
According to a report of La Quinta Inn, the man was observed as aggressive and kept on yelling and throwing things.
Police said they attempted to coax Matthew Williams, 35, to either leave the room or answer the phone. However, the uncooperative man refused.
The police found a barricade once the hotel door was finally opened. Later on, the police decided to deploy the police dog Casper to assist them for the man’s arrest.
However, Mr. Williams, who stands 6 feet tall and weighs 195 pounds, struggled with Casper. He growled and bit the dog on the top of the head, the police reported.
Police charged him with simple assault, cruelty to animals and resisting arrest.
Williams appeared Monday in Manchester Circuit Court and will stay in prison without bail until August 21.
Meanwhile, the New Hampshire Canine Trooper’s Association on its Facebook post was not injured and has been cleared to report back to duty.
