An intoxicated Delaware man bit a police dog after officers stopped him for a suspected DUI, officials said.
Shortly before 2 p.m. on July 8, a trooper spotted a Toyota Camry speeding on the southbound side of the Philadelphia Pike and pulled the vehicle over, the Delaware State Police said.
The vehicle stopped in a parking lot, and the trooper approached the driver, identified as Jamal Wing, 47, of Wilmington.
According to officials, Wing “exited the car without being told and refused all commands to return to his car.”
He then allegedly “proceeded to forcibly resist arrest when troopers and a DSP K9 were detaining him” and “continued to resist and bit the DSP K9 multiple times,” officials claim.
Police said Wing was taken into custody and troopers “smelled alcohol coming from his breath and detected signs of impairment.”

Wing was transported to an area hospital and treated for injuries sustained during the stop. “At the hospital, Wing continued to resist and assaulted a trooper causing the trooper injury and damaging Delaware State Police property,” officials alleged.
According to police, two troopers and the K9, Mako, were injured.
Wing was arrested and charged with multiple crimes, including felony charges of assault on a police officer, assault on a law enforcement animal, DUI, and resisting arrest with force or violence.
He was being held at the Howard R. Young Correctional Institution in Wilmington in lieu of $34,200 cash bond.
