The APD K-9 Officer and agents pursued Reeves for approximately 150 yards through the woods with the APD K-9 Officer giving several warnings to stop or he would deploy his K-9. Reeves continued to flee at which time K-9 Baron was deployed and apprehended Reeves.

Agents searched Reeves incident to arrest and located ammunition and methamphetamine in his pocket. Reeves suffered injuries during the K-9 apprehension.


An agent from HCDTF who is also an EMT provided medical assistance to Reeves prior to an ambulance arriving.
