Man Threatens To Eat Arresting Officers

Last updated on Friday, January 13, 2012

(LAFAYETTE) - A north-central Indiana man accused of auto theft also faces charges alleging that he threatened to eat his arresting officers, their entire families and their police dogs.

The Journal & Courier reported that Paul M. Brock, 39, of Frankfort, was charged Wednesday with auto theft, resisting law enforcement, intimidation and operating a vehicle while intoxicated.

Brock was held Thursday on a $25,000 bond at the Tippecanoe County Jail.

Lafayette police arrested Brock last Friday using police dogs to subdue him after he allegedly stole a car from a gasoline station.

A short time later, police said Brock told officers at a hospital that he would hunt them down and eat them, their families and their dogs.

Police said Brock had a blood-alcohol content more than three times Indiana's legal limit.
