An unarmed Black man was attacked by a police officer’s K-9 as he surrendered to authorities with his hands up, despite an Ohio State Trooper repeatedly urging officers not to release the dog.

The video initially shows authorities pursuing a semi-truck that appeared to “slow down to a roll” to stop.

The driver does not come out of the truck and begins driving back on the road.

The driver eventually stops the semi-truck and comes out of the vehicle surrounded by several police cars and officers, according to the video.

The video then cuts to what appears to be a state trooper coming out of his vehicle and walking toward the driver.

“Do not release the dog with his hands up,” a state trooper warns several times from a distance.

The dog runs toward officers and then turns to Rose and attacks him, pulling him to the ground, the video shows. »
