K9 tries to take chunk out of fleeing car thief’s butt cheek in karma-heavy video

A suspected car thief in Florida found out the hard way that criminal behavior can quickly come back to bite a person in the rear.

The Marion County Sheriff’s Office was alerted to a stolen vehicle on July 31, in Ocala. K9 Corporal Calvin Batts located the vehicle being driven by a white male, later identified as Matthew Gebert. When the deputy tried to pull the vehicle over, Gebert, 29, accelerated in an attempt to get away, MCSO explained on its Facebook page.

The suspect would eventually come to a stop and bail out on foot, with Batts and his partner, K9 Jax, in pursuit. It didn’t take long for Jax to apprehend Gebert, latching onto his backside until help arrived.

Gebert can be heard screaming to the high heavens as Deputy Batts commanded that he place his hands behind his back — service dogs are generally not called off until a suspect is safely in custody.

“Show me your hands! The sooner you show me your hands, the sooner I take the dog off,” the deputy yelled. “Let me see your right hand!”

“Get him off, please!” the suspect begs.

Gebert was arrested for grand theft of a motor vehicle, fleeing to elude a law enforcement officer, possession of cocaine, possession of drug paraphernalia, resisting without violence, driving without a valid license, and violation of probation.

He is being held in Marion County Jail without bond — after all, this is Florida, not New York City.
