A man ignoring police was bitten by a Findlay K-9 Unit after reports of a domestic violence incident Monday. The Findlay Police Department reports that officers found 39-year-old Steven Maciejewski at the Rodeway Motel on Broad Avenue.

The woman told officers that Maciejewski was hiding in the bathroom. Officers told him to come out but he didn’t respond. When officers got into the bathroom they saw that Maciejewski climbed into the attic. K-9 officer Deke was called in due to the tight spaces. Officers told Maciejewski to come out or they would deploy the K-9. He continued to ignore them and Officer Deke bit him on the left bicep.

Maciejewski received treatment at Blanchard Valley Hospital and then was taken to the Hancock County Justice Center.
