SIOUX FALLS (AP) - A Sioux Falls police dog captured a suspect who authorities at one point during a foot chase suspected of having a handgun.

Police say it turned out to be an Airsoft gun, which looks real but shoots plastic pellets.

Authorities say the 19-year-old suspect ran from a traffic stop Thursday night and tried hiding under a vehicle, but the police dog eventually tracked him down and took him down.

The man was treated at a hospital for bite wounds on a leg and then jailed on several charges including fleeing.
