SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. - A Shasta County jury convicted Dillion Sullivan of 15 felony counts including assault with a deadly weapon on an officer, resisting or obstructing an officer, injury to a police dog and evading with willful and wanton disregard for the public.
Officials say on Dec. 29, just before 4 a.m., Redding Officer Guiducci attempted to pull Sullivan over after noticing he was driving a stolen vehicle.
When Sullivan continued driving, officials say Anderson Police got involved and they tried to stop the vehicle as well.
In Anderson, Sullivan was reaching speeds of 110 miles per hour while going southbound on northbound Highway 273, with no headlights.
Sullivan had intentionally ran into a patrol vehicle and fled on foot before officials say they chased him, along with K-9 Chance.
K-9 Chance was shot at by Sullivan, hitting his ear, before he beat Chance in the head while the K-9 bit him, officials say.
Sullivan tried fleeing again, dragging K-9 Chance as he continued to bite him.
At a dead-end in Anderson, officials say Sullivan was detained by officers from both Anderson and Redding departments.
Officials say a loaded revolver was found and due to a prior felony conviction, Sullivan is prohibited from possessing a firearm.
Sullivan's sentencing is set for Jan. 10, 2020 with a maximum sentence of about 11 years in state prison.
