Eric Tyler Mathis told sheriffs it was his property and yelled at them to leave, according to the station. Efforts to arrest him were met with “violent resistance”, according to reports, police said.
“He fought two officers and resisted his efforts to use a Taser,” investigators told the local station.
When the Taser failed to subdue the suspect, officers deployed K-9 Zeek to Mathis. The suspect then tried to fight the police dog and reportedly grabbed him by the neck. Finally Mathis was arrested and charged with robbery, trespassing, assault, resisting an officer and a crime of public order.
His bail was set at $ 136,000.
“We are also pleased that neither officers nor K-9 Zeek were seriously injured,” Sheriff Chip W. Simmons posted.
“A person cannot illegally enter someone else’s vehicle, cannot illegally enter someone else’s occupied home, and cannot fight the efforts of law enforcement officials. Let’s not forget the victims of these crimes and how terrifying it must have been for them, ”the post continued.
