PARK RAPIDS, Minn. (WCCO) — A K-9 Officer was sent to the hospital after being injured in an incident early Tuesday evening, according to the Hubbard County Sheriff’s Office.

At 6:55 p.m., the Sheriff’s Office received a call of a suicidal party trying to harm himself in Park Rapids. Park Rapids Police and the Hubbard County K-9 Unit responded.

When they arrived, the man refused to comply with officers. He then punched the K-9 officer in the head, which knocked the officer to the ground. The officer’s K-9 dog then apprehended the man.

The officer suffered a broken hand during the incident and was treated at a hospital.

Charges are pending for assault on a peace officer, the Sheriff’s Office said.
