Hernando K-9 Nabs Man Accused of Punching Girlfriend
He hid inside a camper bedroom, Hernando deputies said.
BROOKSVILLE – A K-9 bit a suspect on the ankle when he refused to drop a pistol and surrender to deputies, the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office said.
Trevor Schreffler, 29, of Brooksville, was treated for the dog bite and then charged with Domestic Battery, False Imprisonment, Aggravated Assault on a Law Enforcement Officer, and Resisting Officers without Violence.
Deputies were dispatched Thursday (Jan. 24) to a camper at an address on Evergreen Avenue in Brooksville for a report of a fight. Deputies said that a woman told them that Schreffler, her boyfriend, punched her in the face. She told deputies that, after regaining consciousness she began screaming for help but Schreffler would not allow her to leave the camper until she stopped screaming.
Before deputies arrived, Schreffler barricaded himself inside the camper. He told deputies he wanted law enforcement to kill him or he would kill himself.
Cpl. Steven Miller along with K-9 Justice and two other deputies entered the camper. Justice found Schreffler hiding in a bedroom. He was holding a black-colored semiautomatic pistol that was later determined to be a BB air pistol.
When Schreffler refused to drop the weapon, Justice bit him in the right ankle and deputies were able to take him into custody without further incident.
