In Kingman, Arizona, a man trying to evade arrest on Thursday is alleged to have hit a police dog with a rock breaking the animal’s teeth. Adam Benjamin Frankel, 33, was arrested on suspicion of three counts of animal cruelty, escape, criminal damage, felonies and disorderly conduct in relation to a domestic violence charge.

According to the Daily Miner, police arrived at a home where Frankel was accused of assaulting his 46-year-old aunt after kicking in her front door. The woman told authorities her nephew grabbed her and threw her to the ground.


Deputies had been interviewing the two women at the residence when Frankel was apprehended. He denied all charges, and as police were walking him to the squad car, Frankel took off and ran into the desert. A Department of Public Safety Ranger helicopter and an officer with his canine patrol assisted. When the dog and his handler located Frankel hiding in the brush, he again tried to run, but not before allegedly picking up a rock and hitting the dog in the mouth – causing the animal to suffer three broken teeth.

Frankel has been booked into the Mohave County jail. The K-9 was taken to a veterinarian for surgery. There is no word on the extent of the dog’s injuries, however his surgery has exceeded $8,000. There have been no updates on his condition.

    Knock several of his teeth out in jail and hope he gets to stay with the other inmates for quite a while. Jail time as well as paying for the surgery and medical work done on this police dog.

    I wonder what will happen to this police dog since they need him to be able to bite to hold on to a suspect? Does the vet do dental implants for these police dogs like they do for people???

    Frankel best be arrested for abusing a police officer – this K9 IS a cop and being abused by this human maggot should be prosecuted exactly as if he had hit a human officer.
