Glenn Slaughter was on his way to work when he was attacked by a St. Paul police K9 this past summer. Officer Mark Ross and his K9, Suttree, were responding to a call in the area when a collar issue allowed the K9 to break free from Ross and resulted in the attack on Slaughter. Slaughter was not involved in the incident reported to police. Suttree did not heed Ross’s verbal commands to release Slaughter, but instead had to be physically removed from his body, which prolonged the attack.

No lawsuit was filed, but the parties reached a settlement late last week in the amount of $75,000. For more information on this and other recent police K9 attacks and results, check out the Pioneer Press:
