The incident began when an Ohio State Highway Patrol officer attempted to pull over the driver of a big rig for a missing mud flap. However, instead of complying, Rose chose to flee, initiating a high-speed chase that lasted about 20 minutes. Eventually, the big rig came to a stop, and officers demanded the driver to get out of the truck. Though Rose initially complied by stepping out of the rig with his hands up, the situation quickly escalated when the police dog unit arrived at the scene.

As the officer handling the dog urged restraint, confusion and chaos ensued. Despite the plea to avoid releasing the dog, it was deployed, and the K-9 attacked Rose, who was still unarmed and complying with the officers’ commands. The video captured Rose screaming in pain while an officer’s frustration with the situation was evident. The officer had tried to prevent the use of force but was seemingly unheard in the tense moment.
The aftermath of the dog’s attack was devastating. Officers eventually removed the dog from Rose, who was in agony, and proceeded to arrest him and administer first aid.

Rose expressed his pain and frustration, claiming that he had already stopped and complied with the officers’ orders but was still subjected to the violent attack. He also highlighted the fear and intimidation he felt with multiple officers pointing guns at him.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol stated that their troopers were attempting to gain compliance through verbal commands, but the deployment of the Circleville Police Department’s K-9 unit resulted in Rose being bitten.
