NEW CASTLE, Del. - New Castle city police say a burglary suspect tried to choke a police dog during a pursuit.
Officers were called to a home on Washington Street late Wednesday to investigate an attempted burglary and saw a man running away.
A New Castle County police officer and dog chased the man and ordered him to stop. Lt. Adam Brams says 22-year-old Brian Brinton ignored the command and tried to choke the dog before he was taken into custody. The dog was not hurt, but Brinton was treated for minor injuries at Christiana Hospital.
Police say Brinton was linked to two other burglaries and charged with burglary and 10 other offenses. He was sent to Young Correctional Institution on $14,086 bail.
