Latest World News: Video: Unarmed black man attacked by police dog in US
A police dog attacked an unarmed black man in the US after he surrendered with his hands raised following a ‘long chase’, according to a report in CNN. The incident happened on July 4 when cops attempted to stop a commercial tractor-trailer that failed to stop for an inspection. A video was released by the Ohio State Highway Patrol. Authorities have filed a report on the case, which has been redacted, according to the CNN. He said the truck was stopped because it was “missing a left rear mudflap”.
But the vehicle continued west on the Jackson County Freeway and the driver even made “eye contact” with the inspector, according to the report.
The driver has been identified as 23-year-old Jadarrius Rose.
When the truck stopped, an officer pointed a gun at the tractor-trailer and ordered the driver to “get out”, according CNN.
However, the driver ignored orders and began to back up. Officers followed the truck which eventually stopped and the driver emerged surrounded by several police cars and officers.
Video circulating on social media then showed the driver standing in front of cops with his hands in the air.

A police officer who has a dog can be heard saying to Rose “get on the ground or you’ll get bitten”. However, the dog was released and mutilated the driver.
“Don’t release the dog with his hands up!” a soldier can be heard screaming several times before the cop releases the dog.
The video showed the dog biting and pulling Rose by the arm as he screamed loudly.
“Take it off!” Rose screams repeatedly. “Take the dog away from him!” shouted one of the policemen.
Other officers can be heard asking for a first aid kit.
The driver was eventually taken into custody, but it is unclear whether the officer responsible for ordering the dog to attack him was disciplined, according to BNC News.
Highway Patrol clarified that “the dog involved in the incident is from the Circleville Police Department and not the Ohio State Highway Patrol.”
