WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah - A Utah man accused of running naked and biting a police K-9 is facing multiple charges.
Court records show 27-year-old Erasmo Garcia-Serna faces a felony charge of injuring a police animal and three misdemeanors.
Garcia-Serna's attorney Catherine Kezar did not immediately return messages seeking comment Tuesday.
West Valley City police say an officer found Garcia-Serna running naked and yelling in a Costco parking lot on Oct. 28.
Police say Garcia-Serna flexed his muscles and fists "in a threatening manner" and approached the officer, who released his K-9.
Officers say Garcia-Serna started biting the animal on the neck and did not stop until he was stunned with a Taser three times.
West Valley City Deputy Police Chief Mike Powell says the K-9 and Garcia-Serna had minor injuries.
