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.
