A New Hampshire man, who is wanted in connection to a shooting, is now facing additional charges after he exchanged bites with a police dog.

State police entered a home in Boscawen to scoop two men on outstanding warrants. One unsuccessfully tried to hide under a pile of clothes until he was spotted by Veda the police dog.

Both men were charged with resisting arrest. The man who bit Veda also faces charges of interfering with a police dog and assaulting an officer.
