An Anaheim police officer was bitten by a police dog while chasing a parolee on Saturday night at about 9 p.m. near East La Palma Avenue and North Baxter Street in Anaheim, authorities said, according to NBC.
Gang officers were following the parolee in cars when they tried to make a traffic stop, said Sgt. Bob Dunn, an Anaheim Police Department spokesman. The parolee got out of the car and ran, starting a brief foot pursuit, Dunn said. Moments later, the dog turned on an officer.
The parolee was caught.
