Prescott Valley police defend canine use in traffic arrest

In this undated photo provided by the Prescott Valley (Arizona) Police Department, is Alfredo Saldivar. Police on Monday, Sept. 14, 2020, justified the use of an attack dog on a suspect who appeared on a police body cam video to be complying with officers. The Prescott Valley Police Department said in a statement that the use of the canine was necessary during the May arrest because Saldivar, 28, who allegedly had been driving erratically and at high speeds, hesitated before obeying orders to stand up. The video has been gaining attention online since its release late last week. (Prescott Valley Police Department via AP)
