Garcia-Serna did not obey the officer’s commands to stop and get on the ground, then “walked swiftly toward” the officer in a threatening manner, according to the charging documents. That’s when police K-9 “Lobo” was released.
But instead of surrendering or being taken to the ground by Lobo, Garcia-Serna “began biting Lobo on the neck and clawing him in the face,” the charges state.
Police exposed Garcia-Serna to stun-gun technology, Reavy reports.
