Mark Mundell was sitting in his pickup truck outside of the Best Buy store in Porter Ranch when he heard a policeman shouting his name, demanding that he put his hands in the air.
As he did, the Simi Valley Police Department K-9 officer, Richard Wiggington, who apparently has a history of not controlling his dog, swung open the passenger door. He then let his canine, Taz, inside the truck and shut the door.
The next thing Mundell remembers is the dog sinking its teeth into his thigh.
All this is according to a lawsuit recently filed in Los Angeles federal court by Mundell against Wiggington and the City of Simi Valley. Mundell claims that he tried to defend himself, but Wiggington threatened to shoot him if Mundell touched the dog.
