You’re having a bad day if you have a car chase, a dog stabbing, and a naked tree climb all in the same day. Worse if the police are after you.
A 27-year-old Lake City man, who police found naked in a tree, is in custody at Wabasha County Jail after leading police on a chase and stabbing a Goodhue County K-9, according to the Wabasha County Sheriff’s Office.
Shane Michael Cronin faces charges of fleeing a police officer, harming a public safety dog, and possession of a controlled substance.
K-9 Ambush chased Cronin into the woods and bit him. In the struggle, Cronin stabbed Ambush in the shoulder. A Wabasha County deputy also got bitten. Cronin got away, but deputies later found him naked up a tree while the temperature was about -10 degrees.
