Salt Lake K-9 officer faces new charge in second biting incident

A Salt Lake police K-9 officer already facing a criminal charge accusing him of releasing his dog on a Black man who was kneeling in his yard with his hands in the air, has now been charged in connection with a second biting incident.

On Tuesday, the Salt Lake County District Attorney’s Office filed amended charges against Nickolas John Pearce, 39, of Herriman, charging him with a second count of aggravated assault, a second-degree felony.

On Nov. 14, 2019, police pulled over an SUV near 600 West and 100 South that was reported to be stolen. A woman driving the vehicle was ordered to throw out the keys and hold her hands out of the window. She complied with those orders.

But the woman stayed in the SUV when ordered to open the door and get out, according to the updated charging documents.

“(The woman) was not making any threats or aggressive moves toward the officers and did not do so during the entirety of the arrest. Several other officers arrived on the scene and surrounded the vehicle with weapons drawn,” the charges state.
