Bodycam Video Shows Police Dog Attack innocent Woman

A St. Paul police K-9 attacked an unsuspecting woman, knocked her out of her shoes and dragged her to the ground causing bites that required hospitalization, according to a lawsuit filed in federal court.

St. Paul police officer Thaddeus P. Schmidt lost control of his K-9, Gabe, who repeatedly ignored more than 10 commands from Schmidt and another officer to release the woman, Desiree Collins, according to the suit filed Wednesday.

St. Paul police spokesman Steve Linders said that the officers involved apologized to Collins at the time, and that the department also extends its apology.

The bite occurred while Schmidt and Gabe were searching for two males suspected in a home burglary in the 700 block of Minnehaha Avenue.

Collins, who was 52 at the time, was attacked about 6:30 a.m. on Sept. 23 by a dumpster in the 600 block of Van Buren Avenue.
