Police Dog Back on Duty After Two-Story Fall

FONTANA, Calif (KTLA) — Several weeks after being thrown out of a second-story window, Jaris is back on duty.

The Fontana police dog was called back into service last weekend to help search for explosives.

It happened at a home in the 95000 block of Mango Avenue.

The parolee, identified by authorities as Bryan Bills, 28, refused commands to surrender to officers, according to Fontana police.

Officers decided to send Jaris into a room where the suspect was holed up.

As Jaris lunged toward the suspect, the man used the dog’s momentum to throw the animal out the window, police said in a statement.

He fell to the concrete below and was bleeding from the nose and staggering.

The 6½-year-old Belgian Malinois was taken in a police cruiser to an emergency veterinarian for treatment.

Bills allegedly fought officers before he was finally subdued.

He was arrested on suspicion of parole violations, resisting arrest and intentional injury to a police dog.
