Rochester, MN  (KROC AM News) -  A Rochester man has found out the hard way that it’s not wise to go up against a police dog.

Police Capt. John Sherwin says 27-year-old Sean Mikesell is suspected of stealing a car that was parked at the Country Club Manor Kwik Trip Saturday night.

A short while later, police were contacted by a property owner a few miles away on the 6300 block of 10th St SW about a suspicious vehicle. The property owner talked to the man who had been driving and he suddenly took off running. A K9 was used to track the man and when he resisted, the dog bit his arm.

Mikesell was taken to St. Marys Hospital for treatment and then to jail.
