CINCINNATI --

A man is accused of not only fighting the police officer trying to arrest him, but the police dog, too.

Cincinnati police said Darren Lally was seen late Wednesday driving a car taken during an aggravated robbery earlier.

After a chase, Lally bailed out of the car and ran, but was confronted by a police officer and a K-9 unit.

Court documents indicate that Lally punched at the officer and, when the dog approached, punched it in the face.

The dog responded by biting Lally, police said.

Lally is being held on $32,600 bond.
