WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Wilmington Police say a man is in jail after he bit a dog. Police arrested Travis Glaspie on June 5 on multiple counts, but he was released after posting bail. They tried to arrest him again on Friday on other charges, but he ran.

The chase ended when WPD K-9 "Maxx" caught Glaspie. While struggling with Maxx, Glaspie bit the dog's ear, tearing it so severely the dog needed several stitches.

Glaspie was originally wanted on outstanding warrants including possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and firing into an occupied vehicle. He was then charged with felony assault on law enforcement animal, resisting arrest, assault on a law enforcement officer, property damage and possession of a Schedule VI controlled substance.

His bond initially was set at $1,025,000 and he remains in custody.
