    CEDAR CITY, Utah (AP) -- A police pursuit ended when the suspect's dog -- not happy about being bounced around in the car -- bit its owner on the face.

    Sheriff's officers said they approached Nicholas T. Galanis of Salt Lake City to talk to him about some stolen property, but he got in his car and fled with his dog.

    The chase Monday went through a winding, bumpy dirt road about 5 miles northwest of Modena, said sheriff's detective Jody Edwards.

    "Deputies could see the dog in the passenger seat getting slammed into the window," he said.

    The dog, which is part pit bull, became so agitated "he bit his owner in the face," removing part of Galanis' nose, Edwards said. "And this is what ended the chase."

    Galanis was taken to Valley View Medical Center before being booked into Iron County Jail. His dog was taken to a local animal shelter.

    Galanis was held for investigation of supplying false information to police, receiving possession of stolen property and theft.

    Maybe the dog wanted to be a police dog and that was it's application? If so I say hire the dog, it obviously knows how to get someones attention. Ghrit I agree some days it's nice to see Murphy affecting the scum of the earth too.!

    Take care Be safe Poacher.
