Moses Lake Police officers assaulted, K9 Chief quickly ends the fight
MOSES LAKE, Wash. — Moses Lake Police officers were assaulted on Saturday morning, forcing them to release K9 Chief to help end the fistfight.
Two officers arrived at a downtown bar to investigate a disturbance, when a suspect recklessly sped out of the parking lot. According to the Moses Lake Police Department, witnesses said the suspect, 21-year-old Alejandro Sarraraz, was involved in the disturbance at the bar.
The officers followed Sarraraz to his house, and when they tried to arrest him, he fought back. He was quickly joined by others coming from the house, who all began to brawl with the officers. A third officer arrived, and Sarraraz escaped during the fight.
K9 Officer Stewart released K9 Chief from his vehicle, who took down one of the people in the fight, which quickly defused the skirmish altogether.
Sarraraz was shortly after taken into custody, booked into jail on felony charges of second-degree assault and obstruction of justice, and two others were booked on felony third-degree assault and obstruction.
The man bitten by the dog received medical attention on-scene, but the officers involved in the brawl sustained no major injuries.
