A Rice Lake man was charged on June 12 with felony bail jumping, over a month after a police K9 unit found him hiding in a Prairie Lake residence on May 9.

According to the court filing, Trevor L. Davis, 29, had outstanding warrants in Barron County for meth possession, in Rusk County for armed robbery and in Eau Claire County for strangulation and suffocation, false imprisonment and aggravated battery.

The night of May 9, police converged on the residence where Davis was at and stopped a vehicle backing out of the driveway by positioning a squad car in its way, the criminal complaint states.

Davis exited the driver’s side of the vehicle and fled from an officer. Court documents state the passenger remained in the vehicle and was asked who the fleeing man was. They told police they knew him as “T-dog.”

Police then talked to the homeowner, who denied them entry.

Records indicate an officer had heard the homeowner talking to someone before answering the door and when he said no one else was inside, police decided to search the home on belief he was harboring a fugitive.

A K9 warning was given multiple times before the dog was released. A short time later, the filing states, yelling could be heard coming from inside.

Davis’ was apprehended inside the home and admitted to hearing K9 warnings, according to police reports. His left arm was treated at an Eau Claire hospital for puncture wounds.
