Friday, Jan 6, 2012County: Tippecanoe
Alleged: Paul Matthew Brock
Seven criminal charges were filed in Tippecanoe County on Wednesday against a Frankfort man accused of stealing a car and issuing a threat to eat the arresting officers, their K-9s and their children.
Paul M. Brock, 39, was charged with two counts of auto theft, resisting law enforcement, intimidation, operating a vehicle with a blood-alcohol content of 0.15 percent or more and striking a law enforcement animal.
Police arrested Brock on Friday night after being called to a reported auto theft at the Speedway Gas Station on Elmwood Avenue about 10:03 p.m. Witnesses told police that a man matching Brock's description got into a vehicle that was not his and drove off.
The owner of the vehicle said she left her car unlocked and on because she was warming it up.
Police caught up with Brock after he was spotted pulling into the parking lot of the Pay Less on Maple Point Drive.
Officers used K-9 units to subdue Brock once he exited the vehicle, and Brock kicked one police dog in the head twice during his arrest. Police determined that Brock was intoxicated, and a blood test later showed that he had a blood-alcohol content of 0.26 percent.
When Brock was taken to the hospital for medical clearance, he reportedly told police he would hunt them down and eat them, their dogs and their entire families.
He also demanded to be let out of his handcuffs so he could assault police officers.
After leaving the hospital, Brock was booked into the Tippecanoe County Jail. He remained incarcerated Wednesday night on a $25,000 surety bond.
