[ARCHIVED] Wanted Man Barricades Door, Hides, Bitten by K9 Dax

On April 11, 2023, at approximately 1:05 a.m., Lake County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a residence in the 35600 block of North Lane Drive, Ingleside, for a violation of an order of protection.  The protected person reported the respondent of the order, Richard C. Huhn, 53, of the 35600 block of North Lake Drive, Ingleside, was at her home, in the garage, refusing to leave.  The victim reported Huhn threatened he would kill her if she called the police.  Huhn had an active arrest warrant for a previous violation of an order of protection.

Sheriff’s deputies arrived and attempted to speak with Huhn through an access door leading into the garage.  Huhn refused to exit the garage and placed objects in front of the door, to barricade it, should deputies attempt to enter.  Sheriff’s Canine Dax arrived at the scene and Huhn was informed to exit, or K9 Dax would be released.  

Huhn refused to exit, and sheriff’s deputies utilized a ram-device to force the service door open.  Sheriff’s deputies entered and located Huhn hiding under a bench in the garage.  He refused to surrender, even after again being warned K9 Dax would be released.  K9 Dax was released and bit Huhn on the leg.  Upon being bit, Huhn surrendered, and was placed into custody.  He was transported to an area hospital for treatment for the bite wounds.  

After reviewing the facts and circumstances of the incident, the Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office approved the charge of Violating an Order of Protection with a Prior Conviction.  

Huhn will be transported to the Lake County Jail shortly, upon his discharge from the hospital.  

All defendants are presumed innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law.
