Man Allegedly Pees On Alberta Police Car, Police Dog Runs Him Down

BEAUMONT, Alta. - An Alberta man was taken down by a police dog after brazenly trying to mark his territory on an officer's cruiser.

The 22-year-old man and several others were drinking outside a bar in Beaumont, Alta., just south of Edmonton, when they were approached by police after a tip from an Alberta liquor inspector.

Police say one of the men urinated on the driver's door of the squad car and then ran away from the scene.

The K-9 unit was called and with the assistance of a local taxi, officers and the dog located a suspect.

Dany LaFrance of Edmonton faces charges of mischief, assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest.

LaFrance is scheduled to appear in provincial court on Dec. 11.
