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.
Fearing she was going to be robbed, the clerk called police.
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.
A K-9 was used to help subdue Diaz, but an officer had to use a baton after Diaz punched the dog several times.
Diaz was arrested for resisting arrest, assaulting a police dog, and an outstanding warrant.
