DRUNK DELAWARE MAN LAUNCHES VICIOUS ATTACK ON POLICE DOG
Jamal Wing, 47, had caught the attention of State Police after being pulled over in a Wilmington parking lot for recklessly speeding on a highway. With a strong odor of alcohol emanating from his breath, Wing stepped out of his Toyota Camry without any prompting from the troopers and ignored their commands to return to his vehicle. Sensing the escalating danger, the troopers enlisted the assistance of a police dog, hoping to restore order to the situation. However, in a desperate bid to evade arrest, Wing sank his teeth into the police dog, viciously biting the loyal companion multiple times. Undeterred by the police dog and its handlers, Wing continued to resist arrest, causing further chaos and injury.
