An Oregon jury has ruled against a man who sued the city of Salem after he was bitten by a police dog.
The Statesman Journal reported John Hillebrand sought $1 million for physical pain, emotional harm and legal fees.
Hillebrand alleged that police entered his Salem home for a search in February 2013 and commanded a German Shepherd named Dillon to bite him while he was asleep.
Police painted a different picture, saying officers responded to reports that Hillebrand was at his ex-girlfriend’s home, high on drugs and yelling. They said an officer repeatedly shouted that Hillebrand needed to leave or a K-9 dog would be deployed.
