STOCKTON (CBS13) – A Stockton man with an outstanding warrant was arrested for punching a police dog.
Jose Diaz, 25, was reportedly acting strange inside a business in the 100 block of South Wilson Way.

Responding officers encountered Diaz as he was walking out of the business. Police say Diaz admitted to stealing a phone, and would then become combative when asked to reenter the store.
