A Polk County K9 apprehended a fugitive wanted on a number of serious charges.
Eleno Suarez, 21, was found hiding under a bed inside a home in Frostproof on Thursday night.
Deputies had been searching for him for quite some time. He was accused of opening fire on deputies during a pursuit.
He's wanted on felony warrants for several crimes, including attempted murder of a law enforcement officer.
Deputies and U.S. Marshals said Suarez refused to surrender, so they sent the K9 after him, which proved to be a good move.
But not for Suarez, who is recovering at Lake Wales Medical Center for several dog bite wounds.
The sheriff's office said Suarez will make his first appearance in court Saturday morning.
