A K9 policeman in Florida is being praised for his efforts in arresting a suspect who fled during a traffic stop in New Port Richey.
Deputy Commissioner Nick Carmack, of the Pasco County Sheriff's Office, stopped the red Nissan Rogue on Tuesday morning when two suspects fled, leaving a child in the back seat.
The camera of Carmack's body captured the intense moment when he left his K9 partner, Shep, out of the car to catch the suspect, who seemed to jump a fence into the backyard.
Carmack yells at Shep to "catch" him while the dog pursues the man. Suspects run around a house, but can not get away from the dog that pounces on him and bites him. The dog drags the suspect to the ground while screaming in pain.
"Take it, Shep," Carmack yells, as he runs to the dog.
K9 Shep helped his fellow policeman to shoot down a suspect on Tuesday after the man fled a traffic stop.

The suspect was identified as James Miller, 28, who had fled when Carmack stopped him to stop the traffic.
While the officer handcuffs the suspect, he patts Shep and tells him he did a good job.
"Good boy, you got it," says Carmack, and eventually gets his partner K9 to release the suspect.
The Pasco County Sheriff's Office identified the suspect as James Miller, 28. They said Miller and another suspect jumped out of the Nissan and ran when Carmack stopped them.
Miller was medically cleared and arrested. The second suspect was captured by Rep. Rob Wilkins and his K9 partner Knox.

Both men were accused of car theft, fleeing to escape, child abuse and criminal mischief. Miller was also charged with driving with a suspended or revoked license.
This is not the first time K9 Shep has been praised for bringing down a suspect. In February, a viral video of the dog helped Carmack catch a man who fled a stolen vehicle.
