A Shenandoah man was arrested about 9:20 a.m. Saturday after allegedly assaulting a K9 deputy.

The Fremont County Sheriff’s Office reported a K9 Unit was called to assist the Shenandoah Police Department and Page County Sheriff’s Office after a man allegedly barricaded himself in a house in Shenandoah.

Deputies were advised that Shenandoah Police were attempting to arrest Jonathan L. Gray, 37, of Shenandoah, on a Page County warrant, when Gray allegedly ran into his home and barricaded the door.

Deputies made several attempts to get Gray to exit the home peacefully, however, Gray refused, reports stated. Fremont County Sheriff K9 Deputy Roby was deployed inside the residence, and Gray allegedly began throwing glass and metal objects at deputies and the K9, ultimately hitting the K9.

Gray continued to resist Roby and law enforcement officers resulting in injury to a law enforcement officer, reports stated.

Gray was transported to Shenandoah Hospital by Shenandoah Rescue and then to the Page County Jail.

He is charged in Page County for assault on a police service dog, assault on an officer, interference with official acts and contempt of court.
