The pursuing officers unleashed their K-9 named “Yana.”

“It was during the foot pursuit the suspect began to turn around and point a firearm at K-9 Yana,” said ISP Sgt. Scott Keegan.Yana made contact with the firearm the suspect was holding and knocked both him and the weapon to the ground.”

Cousins got back up off the ground and tried to keep running, but Yana would not give up and got Cousins to the ground a second time and held him to the ground so Muncie officers could arrest him.

Cousins was treated at Ball Memorial Hospital for dog bites and other wounds before being taken to the Delaware County Jail.
