Man accused of biting KCSO K9, takes plea deal


A man accused of biting a Kern County Sheriff’s K9 while resisting arrest pleaded no contest to several felony charges on Wednesday.

Jarred Allen admitted to four felony charges, including reckless evading and willfully harming a peace officer’s dog with serious injury.

In exchange for that plea, three other felony counts were dropped.

Sheriff’s deputies arrested Allen after a pursuit in Bakersfield last August. When the K9 was sent to take him down, Allen grabbed it and bit it just below the eye.

The dog suffered a minor cut, but went back to work the next day.

Allen is due in court next month for sentencing.
