Michigan Police Officer Facing Felony Charge After Using Police Dog to Restrain Black Man for Nearly Four Minutes 

A Michigan police officer is now facing felony charges after he restrained a man with a K-9 during a encounter during November arrest, leaving the man with a broken hip.

Michigan State Police Trooper Parker Surbrook, 33, was arraigned March 5th on one count of felonious assault for his on-duty use of a police dog to restrain a Black man for nearly four minutes as he begged to be released. Surbrook is currently on unpaid suspension pending the criminal proceedings.

“This is a blatant abuse of power and can only be described as torture,” said Democratic Rep. Sarah Anthony in a statement Friday. “This incident, and every one we’ve witnessed like it, is heartbreaking and infuriating.”

The Nov. 13 arrest took place after in Lansing after Surbrook arrived on the scene with an undercover to stop a driver who had just fled the scene of traffic stop and crashed his vehicle into a tree. The driver was believed to be armed at the time, Michigan Live reported. A in-car police camera captured the events of the arrest. Surbrook a K-9 handler since 2017, put the dog on the driver as he exited the vehicle and allowed the dog to maul and restrain the man for over three minutes.

“Stay on the ground motherf-cker!” Surbrook shouted as the dog bit the man. “Don’t move!”

“OK, sir,” the unarmed man replied from against the ground.

“Stay on him!” Surbrook repeated, “Good boy.”

“Please sir,” the man said. “I’m not moving.” When the man told Surbrook the dog was on his face, the trooper replied, “I don’t care.”

“Please, sir. Please, sir. Please I’m begging you, sir. Please. Please, sir. Please,” the man repeated. After more officers arrived about four minutes later, the K-9 was removed from the man. The man informed the backup officers he couldn’t stand and a Michigan State Police investigation it was discovered his hip was broken.

The man got bite injuries across his body, including his head, shoulder blade area, left arm bicep and forearm, left side rib area, left and right side of his pelvic bone area, genitals, and the top of the thighs. As of now victim has yet to be identified and wasn’t charged with a crime.
