K9 chases down suspect who fled during traffic stop

- The Pasco County Sheriff's Office released video of one of its K9 officers chasing down and nabbing a suspect who ran during a traffic stop.

Deputies say the pursuit happened August 15th in the Shady Hills area.

The suspect, identified as Michael Brick, Jr., fled from the traffic stop, deputies say, and the K9, "Shep," ran after him.
