The 24-year-old driver bailed out of the car and ran from the scene but was found nearby. When he refused to surrender, he was subdued by the K-9 canine officer named Otto.

After treatment at a local hospital for bites, the man was booked into the Salt Lake County Jail on suspicion of possessing a stolen vehicle, possession of burglary tools, possession of a concealed weapon, hit and run and fleeing police.
