(Scroll down for video) Police in the United Kingdom, launched an investigation after a video emerged showing a police dog biting a shirtless man’s neck.
The video shows the man laying face down on the road with a police officer behind him and a police officer in front of him.
The police officer who was standing in front of the suspect, is seen on the video holding the dog. When the man tried to lift himself up from the ground, the dog jumped on him and sank its teeth into his neck.
The dog handler tried to pull away the vicious animal, but it did not release the man. The dog dragged the man a short distance along the road.
The incident happened around 3:00 a.m. on Monday morning, after officers arrested the man, who was involved in a fight in Weston-Super Mare, Somerset. A number of passersby recorded the event on their phones, and they can be heard in the background screaming and whistling.
A police spokesperson confirmed that the investigation is still ongoing.
