TOWN OF DOVER, Wis. (AP) - Authorities say a Racine County police dog helped a sheriff’s deputy detain an unruly man the weekend.

Deputy Kurt Clemens was monitoring traffic early Saturday morning when his K-9 Nox began barking. Clemens noticed a man walking quickly around the passenger side of his squad car.

Authorities say Clemens tried to talk to the man, but that he was hostile and wouldn’t keep his hands out of his pockets.

As Clemens prepared to search him, the man allegedly pushed the deputy in the chest. Clemens slipped on ice but was able to grab the man. The police dog then left the car to help, biting the suspect in the wrist.

The man was arrested on suspicion of battery to a police officer and resisting or obstructing an officer.
