Naked Man Tasered After Biting Police Dog

A warrant has been issued for a man who had earlier been charged with biting a police dog.

Erasmo Guadalupe Garcia-Serna was arrested back in October after police found him causing a disturbance at a Costco car park in Utah.

A naked Garcia-Serna was spotted trying to tear the hoses off the petrol pumps, the Associated Press reported.

Officer Todd Zahlmann told KUTV: “I said, ‘I’ve got a police dog, get on the ground, you’re gonna get bit by the dog.

“He kept coming at me in a very threatening manner, so I released Lobo.”

Lobo charged at Garcia-Serna, biting him on the chest, whereupon the 27-year-old retaliated by gnawing on the dog’s neck and clawing at its face.

According to the Deseret News, the officer was unable to stop Garcia-Serna from attacking the dog and had to taser him three times to subdue him.

Garcia-Serna was charged with injuring a police service animal, lewdness, interfering with an arresting officer and disorderly conduct.

He failed to appear in court last week, resulting in a $25,000 arrest warrant being issued against him, the Salt Lake Tribune revealed.
