Man bites police dog


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.
