Boulder police have detained a man who reportedly bit a dog he was dragging through a Whole Foods store before pulling a knife on an officer.
Boulder police spokeswoman Shannon Aulabaugh said officers were responding to a report of a man dragging a pit-bull mix by its collar through the store, 2905 Pearl St. Witnesses told police the man was dragging the dog so hard the collar came off, though Aulabaugh said the collar may have also come off because it was loose.
Aulabaugh said the man also reportedly bit the dog on the ear.
When an officer arrived, Aulabaugh said the man displayed a knife, but dropped it when the officer drew a stun gun.
The man was detained and later arrested on suspicion of carrying a concealed weapon.
The dog was taken to the Humane Society of Boulder Valley.
