Man accused of trying to drown deputy's dog
LIVINGSTON - Sheriff's deputies arrested a Livingston Parish man after they said he fled deputies serving a warrant, then tried to drown a sheriff's office K9.
Deputies charged Kendall McCarroll, 29, with resisting arrest and attempting to injure or kill a police officer Wednesday.
A sheriff's office spokesperson said deputies served a warrant on McCarroll for failing to appear in court, and he fled toward a pond. Deputies sent out a K9 after him, and said McCarroll tried to drown the dog in the pond.
Other deputies went into the pond after him and apprehended McCarroll after a struggle. Investigators said the K9 was not hurt.
Deputies took McCarroll to be treated for injuries he got during the struggle, then booked him into the parish jail. He was given a $101,000 bond.
