Fontana, CA (KTLA) — A police dog has possible brain damage after he was allegedly thrown out of a second-story window by a parolee.
It happened on Sunday afternoon at a home in the 95000 block of Mango Avenue.
The parolee, identified by authorities as Bryan Bills, 28, refused commands to surrender to officers, according to Fontana police.
Officers decided to send Jaris into a room where the suspect was holed up.
As Jaris lunged toward the suspect, the man used the dog's momentum to throw the animal out the window, police said in a statement.
He fell to the concrete below and was bleeding from the nose and staggering.
The dog was taken in a police cruiser to an emergency veterinarian for treatment. He has possible brain damage as well as other internal injuries.
Bills allegedly fought officers before he was finally subdued. He was arrested on suspicion of parole violations, resisting arrest and intentional injury to a police dog.
