The Annapolis Police Department owns several dogs that officers train to sniff out bombs and drugs, and find missing persons—and even occasionally take down city officials.
Alderman Mathew Silverman (D-5th Ward) volunteered to don a full body suit Tuesday night and become Rexo's—the department's 2-year-old German shepherd—unlucky victim.
The takedown was part of a K-9 unit demonstration during the police's National Night Out at Annapolis Gardens Community.
Rexo chased Silverman down and didn't let go until officers could move in to make an "arrest."
Silverman said even with all the suit's padding, being taken down still hurts.
