SALISBURY — A 42-year-old Salisbury man was shocked twice and bitten by a police dog during an altercation with Salisbury Police officers Sunday.
Salisbury Police said officers were responding to the 400 block of Foster Lane to a call about an assault about 8:45 p.m.
Authorities found Cary Kiser, of 413 S. Long St., in the street, a police report said, screaming profanity.
“You’re going to have to f—— kill me,” Kiser told officers when they arrived, according to the report.
Kiser then “ripped off his shirt, ripped off his bracelet and necklace off, and began digging in his pockets,” the report said.
Salisbury Police Capt. Shelia Lingle said officers drew their Tasers and told the man to take his hands out of his pockets.
Lingle said the man started walking toward a nearby officer with his hands in his pockets and a Taser was deployed.
“He began to pull the probes out of his chest,” the report said, “at that point, a second officer shot him.”
When the second stun gun was fired a dog attacked the man. Kiser was treated by EMS on the scene and taken to Rowan Regional Medical Center for further treatment.
The report did not indicate where the man was bitten or how many stitches he received, Lingle said. A Salisbury Police K-9 report was not available Monday morning.
While in the emergency room, according to the report, Kiser again began using profanity and threatening officers.
At one point, Kiser told a nearby officer he was “sizing him up to see how big of a hole to dig” after he killed him, the report said.
Police said Kiser then stood up and confronted the officer and the two men went to the floor, hitting a nearby cabinet.
Kiser began spitting blood at officers and was again restrained in his chair, authorities said.
Kiser was treated for a gash he received during the altercation, the report said, and taken to the Magistrate’s Office for processing.
He was charged with felony malicious conduct by a prisoner, misdemeanor disorderly conduct and misdemeanor resisting, obstructing or delaying a public officer.
He was in jail Monday under a $50,000 bond.
