HOUSTON (FOX 26) - A man, who was convicted in the past of theft and evading arrest, tried to run from law enforcement officers again, but a K-9 officer literally rolled with the punches in apprehending that man. When deputy constables arrived to the North Freeway frontage road near Lockhaven Drive on Thursday in response to an alarm, they found a parked vehicle with the engine running outside a business.
The K-9 patrol unit determined someone cut through the fence outside the business and saw someone running out of that building. The deputy constable yelled for the man to stop but he continue to run away. The K-9 was able to reach the man and stop him.
“The suspect struck our K-9 several times with his fists in an attempt to free himself from the K-9 but was unsuccessful,” explained Pct. 4 Constable Mark Herman in a statement released on Wednesday.
During the investigation, deputy constables identified that man as Patrick Bouvier Davenport, who owned the parked vehicle and was convicted of crimes before. Deputy constables arrested Davenport, who was charged with evading arrest with previous conviction, a state jail felony, and interference with a police service dog, a Class A misdemeanor. Davenport is in Harris County jail custody with two separate bonds of $15,000.00 and $5,000.00 for the two charges.
