LA PINE, OR -- A Bend man with an outstanding warrant was arrested Sunday, after a Deschutes County K-9 deputy was deployed – twice. 

 

According to the Sheriff's Office, Gerald Vinson initially failed to pull over for a traffic stop near Burgess Road and Meadow Lane, at about 4:40 p.m. After a short pursuit, he pulled into a random driveway and tried to quickly walk away from his car. The deputy deployed the K-9 “Brolo” who chased the man. Vinson surrendered and Brolo was recalled. 

 

But, when Vinson walked toward his vehicle, deputies say he appeared to try and get back into the driver’s seat. Brolo was again sent out, biting Vinson’s leg and taking him to the ground. 
 
The suspect was treated at the hospital before going to jail. On top of the original outstanding warrant, Vinson now also faces attempting to elude and other charges.
