A Delaware man, who was reportedly under the influence, bit a police dog

“multiple times”

while trying to escape police, according to officials per the NY Post

Jamal Wing, 47, apparently went haywire Saturday around 1:40 a.m. following a police stop. Wing was pulled over for allegedly speeding on an area highway in Wilmington. According to officers, the suspect jumped out of his vehicle “without being told” and ignored official commands to get back inside the car.

Police released their K9 on Wing in an attempt to subdue and arrest him but Wing began biting the dog back.

“Wing continued to resist and bit the DSP K9 multiple times,”

the department said in a statement. 

When officers finally restrained the suspect they said they

“smelled alcohol on his breath and noticed signs of impairment,”

reports reveal. Wing was taken to the hospital for his injuries along with the K9 and two officers.

“Two troopers and K9 Mako were injured by Wing and required medical evaluation at an area hospital,”

the department said.

Wing was released from the hospital and charged with,

“assaulting the K9 and its two officers, driving under the influence, resisting arrest with force, criminal mischief, disorderly conduct, failure to have required license, and speeding in excess,”

the department said.
