VANCOUVER — Vancouver police are taking the unusual step of responding publicly to a lawsuit filed last week over a police dog attack.
Christopher Evans, 33, is suing the Vancouver Police Department for excessive use of force after his leg was ripped open by a police dog during his arrest. Evans needed 100 staples to close the wounds after he was bitten four times.
