Video shows K-9 dog bite during arrest

The Greenville County Sheriff's Office released video Wednesday from an April incident in which a suspect was bitten by a K-9 police dog.

On April 28, 2019, deputies responded to a residence on Columbia Avenue while attempting to locate Kevin Leroy Scott White, a suspect wanted out of Florida for violation of probation.

The video was released as part of a critical incident briefing provided by the Sheriff's Office.

Sheriff's Office spokesman Lt. Ryan Flood opens the video with an explanation of how the GCSO office of professional standards investigates incidents involving use of force.

"Consistent with all incidents involving a deputy's use of force, we do not draw any conclusions about whether the deputy's actions were consistent with our policies and in accordance with the law until the investigation has been thoroughly completed," Flood said before warning that the video may be disturbing to some viewers.

The 11-minute video shows deputies arriving at the residence with a K-9.

According to a release from the Sheriff's Office, White drove up to the property on a moped as deputies arrived and, upon seeing the deputies, got off of the moped and ran into a nearby wooded area.

Body-camera footage shows a deputy guiding a K-9 around the property. At one point a deputy is heard saying "he's getting dog-bit," before calling out the suspect's name.

According to the release, deputies eventually located White hiding inside a dishwasher unit under a porch at a nearby mobile-home park.
