A man who reportedly assaulted a police officer led authorities to go on a wild chase in California on Monday evening. The police pursuit started from Santa Ana to Irvine, where it ended badly for the suspect.
The suspect, later on, identified as Antonio Padilla, Jr., ditched a car he’d carjacked earlier to escape authorities. But what he didn’t expect was that a really fast K-9 unit would take him down.
The wild chase ended when the carjacker ditched the vehicle and tried to escape police.
But this K-9 unit officer is much faster than he was.
The K-9 officer credited for the apprehension of Padilla was Puskas. The police dog may have shown his bravery in this hot case but unfortunately, Puskas nearly lost all his teeth (but canines intact) during the attack.
Puskas was badly injured while taking down the suspect.
On Tuesday morning, Puskas went through dental surgery.
The latest update stated that Puskas should be able to go home with his handler tonight.
Puskas is expected to go back to work after a break for a few weeks.
Meanwhile, police reports stated that Padilla almost hit a policewoman at Garden Grove with his truck on Feb. 18.
Garden Grove Police Lt. Carl Whitney said that a motor officer stopped Padilla and wrote him a traffic citation. However, Padilla backed his truck almost hitting the policewoman. Padilla fled the scene and wasn’t found until Monday evening, when the chase started.
Suspect Antonio Padilla, Jr., 37, was wanted for assault with a deadly weapon in Garden Grove.
Garden Grove detectives tried to arrest Padilla in Santa Ana where they spotted his 2016 GMC Sierra Truck. Padilla, however didn’t pull over and that’s when a police chase started.
A helicopter joins in the pursuit to capture the incident on camera.
Padilla was sandwiched in Irvine and that's when he carjacked a woman's Audi.
The woman and her brother tried to stop Padilla, but he drove off and rammed the cars near him.
