Man Bites Dog

July 1, 2019

A 35-year-old man wanted on domestic violence charges and high on drugs refused to come out of his hotel room in Manchester, New Hampshire, police there said.

Instead, police said in a written statement, the Nashua resident was “throwing things, yelling, and acting aggressive.”

Police opened the hotel room door, discovering a barricade and a still-uncooperative suspect, so they used a New Hampshire State Police dog to try to subdue the man.

The suspect, police said, “wrapped his arms around the dog and struggled with him” and “At one point” he “growled, opened his mouth, and bit the dog on the top of the head.”

The incident occurred about 9:20 p.m. Friday, June 28 at the La Quinta Inn & Suites in Manchester, according to police.

The man was charged with simple assault, resisting arrest, and “willful interference with police dogs,” police said.
