Avery Davis, 26, appears to believe that a dog is a man’s best friend but there are just some things a canine will not do: like attack police officers to protect a suspected felon. After Davis told his pit bull to attack police trying to arrest him, the pit bull instead turned around and attacked Davis.
Police in Riviera Beach, Florida were investigating a burglary when they spotted Davis, who matched the suspect’s description. Davis was walking with is dog and carrying hair care products. At first he complied with orders, by them ran from them and said “Y’all gonna have to kill us.” The dog clearly did not feel the same way. When Davis was tasered, he released the pit bull and allegedly said “Kill’em boy, kill’em.”
Instead the dog bit Davis in his buttocks and trying to bite his head as Davis fled to a nearby apartment complex to hide. He was later arrested and taken to a hospital. Davis has been charged with two counts of aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer and one count resisting an officer with violence. Notably, the original charge of burglary was not included in the list of charges, at least in the initial articles.
