Not that there’s a typical man bites dog story, but this one involves meth, nudity, stun guns and the Sunshine State.
A Florida man, reportedly muddy, naked and high on methamphetamine, dropped to his hands and knees to confront a police dog and bit the K-9’s ear during an arrest last week. The dog, Casper, retaliated by biting Donald Watts’ head before cops executed the arrest of the 38-year-old perp, according to Florida’s 92.1 CTQ.
Fittingly, the incident happened in a northern Florida town called High Springs.
Locals called 911 after spotting Watts roaming around with a flashlight, according to Action News Jackson. When police arrived, they found Watts in a ditch making bird noises.
Upon spotting the deputies, Watts flew the coop and sought shelter under a mobile home. After police convinced him to come out of hiding, Watts’ reportedly struck one of the officers repeatedly. Cops brought in Casper after their attempts to subdue the alleged perp with stun guns proved ineffective. More than a half-dozen officers were called to the scene.
Watts’ was taken to an area hospital for a check-up after losing the dogfight, then brought to a county jail.
He’s accused of resisting arrest, battery on a law enforcement officer and aggravated battery on a service dog.
