COLORADO SPRINGS — Colorado Springs police arrested a man wanted on multiple felony warrants Thursday afternoon thanks to the assistance of a K9.

Police said they spotted 28-year-old Zachary Burns in the 900 block of 19th Street, which prompted a response from the tactical enforcement unit and K9 officers.

Authorities said Burns ran from police, prompting one officer to release the K9 Kylo. Police said Burns dove to the ground and surrendered after the dog was released. Police said he suffered minor bruises from falling to the ground.
