Two Years in Jail for Attack on K-9 Officer

VICKSBURG, MS (Ben Caxton) — A Warren County man is going to spend another two years in jail for attacking a Warren County Sheriff’s Department K-9. When a deputy attempted to stop Thomas Bruce Wilkerson Jr. for reckless driving on July 9 of 2017, he fled, driving into the yard of a home on Nailor Road and then running into a wooded area. He later got into a fight with a deputy who spotted him. During the scuffle, the deputy opened the door of his squad car to let his K-9 partner, Soldier, out. The dog caught Wilkerson and bit him on the leg before being picked up, body slammed and tossed down the ravine. Wilkerson was sentenced to 10 years in prison with two years to serve on the charge of injuring a Warren County Sheriff’s deputy’s K-9, and five years in prison with two to serve on a grand larceny charge. The sentences will run concurrently.
