An Indianapolis man was arrested after police said he broke into a garage, led police through a chase through several farm fields and held a police dog by the neck.
Robert D. Snead, 44, was arrested on charges of burglary, theft, leaving the scene of a property damage accident, criminal mischief and cruelty to a law enforcement animal.
A man called police at 1:06 a.m. Saturday to report that he found a man standing in his garage in the 4500 block of N. County Road 600E, in Franklin. The man got into a truck and left the property when the homeowner confronted him.
Police said Snead drove through a cornfield and a cemetery and into a soybean field when police found him, according to a report from the Johnson County Sheriff’s office.
A police dog found Snead in the soybean field.
Snead grabbed the dog by the neck and would not let go until an officer pushed him off the animal, according to the report.
Snead, 2310 Harlan St., was taken to the Johnson County Jail where he was held on $7,000 bond.
