ROSEBURG, Ore. (AP) - Police in the southern Oregon community of Roseburg say they used a stun gun on a man accused of disorderly conduct and also zapped the man’s dog after it reportedly bit an officer’s leg when its owner was detained.

The News-Review reports (https://is.gd/yB4UVF ) that police say they received several complaints Monday evening about an intoxicated man and his aggressive dog. Police say officers located the man but he reportedly refused to talk to them and walked into a street, causing vehicles to stop or slow for him. Police say they used the stun gun after the man continued to act belligerent and refused to stop.

William Champion was arrested for investigation of resisting arrest, second-degree disorderly conduct and interfering with a police officer.

The dog ran off after it was shocked but was later captured and taken to an animal shelter.

KATU-TV reports that an employee of a nearby drive-in says the dog has always been friendly.
