LANSING - Police arrest two men in Lansing, after a police dog bites the two men to help get them under control. Police were called o a domestic dispute at a home in the 100 block of East Rouse Street shortly before 10 o'clock Tuesday night. A woman there said her ex-boyfriend had gotten into an argument and the argument got physical.

When officers arrived a man was driving away from the home. Police attempted to make a traffic stop, but the driver kept going. Police say a brief pursuit began, but was ended shorty, due to excessive speed becoming a safety issue. An officer noted the license plate number. They went to the home where the car was registered in the 1000 block of Legrand Drive.

There a police dog took a track from the vehicle to the apartment to which the car is registered. Police say they encountered the 23-year-old man who was accused of the domestic assault. Police say the man was combative, and resisted arrest. The man's 18-year-old half-brother also became combative with police. The officers' dog bit the two men, and the officers were able to subdue them.

The men were taken to the hospital for treatment, and then taken to jail to be booked. The woman had minor injuries that did not require medical attention.
