Cops Share K9 Attack Aftermath: 'Our Dog Would Bite The C*** Out Of You'

Police in Florida have shared a social media post showing the aftermath of a K9 dog attack on a suspect who reportedly did not take officers' threats seriously.

In a June 27, Facebook post a Brevard County Sheriff's Office (BCSO) spokesperson said K9 dog "Lefty" left his mark on suspect Stanley Carter.

According to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, there were 343 K9 units across the state's police departments and correctional facilities in 2020.

Police arrived near the Pineda Causeway and US 1 after they obtained a warrant for Carter's arrest. He had allegedly made threats of violence to kill a family member.

When officers found Catter's abandoned motorcycle at the top of a bridge, Corporal Lee Roth and Lefty were requested to help with the search for the fugitive.

The Facebook post read: "'Lefty' immediately picked up a track on the south side of the roadway that led them under the bridge to the north side of the area.

"Based upon 'Lefty's' actions Corporal Roth believed that Carter was hiding in the thick brush so he gave repeated verbal announcements for Carter to surrender but received no response to the instructions.

"Corporal Roth and K9 Lefty continued the track deeper into the wooded area where 'Lefty' made contact with the suspect who apparently thought we were kidding when we announced that our dog would bite the c*** out of you if you are a violent fugitive who doesn't comply with the lawful instructions of our deputy."

The post continued: "Well as you might imagine, Carter was quite surprised to have a dog hanging from his arm by the teeth and also from his leg as he was trying to avoid apprehension.

"Folks, it's real simple…if you ever wonder if the K9's from the BCSO will take a bite out of crime, just 'mess around and found out.' Carter was taken into custody on the active warrant with a 'no bond' status for written threats to kill, do bodily harm or conduct a mass shooting or acts of terrorism, violation of conditions of pre-trial release and stalking."

According to the BCSO booking information, Carter, 46, was arrested on June 24 and charged with sending a written threat to kill or injure and simple stalking following cyberstalking harassment among several other offenses. Carter remains in jail and is due in court on July 18 and August 2 and 3.
