Spokane Valley K-9 falls into culvert during chase

Posted: Updated:
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - It was tougher than usual for a Spokane Valley sheriff's K-9 to get his man.

Not only did K-9 Laslo and his partner, Deputy Jeff Thurman, fall into a culvert during a chase in the early morning darkness, the deputy landed on top of the German Shepherd.

Undeterred, Laslo scrambled out of the culvert and caught up with the man a short distance away, holding him until other deputies took him into custody.

A sheriff's spokesman says the deputy had pursued a speeding motorcycle early Monday morning, watching it blow through several stop signs before the driver stopped the bike and ran. A female passenger stayed with the bike.

The deputy suffered minor injuries from the fall; the dog was unhurt. The motorcycle was stolen.

A 51-year-old man was booked on three felony warrants as well as attempting to elude, possession of a stolen vehicle and resisting arrest.
