Two Charleston County sheriff's deputies were injured during an arrest Friday.
The incident happened after a traffic stop about 7:30 p.m. at the intersection of Midview Drive and Hardwood Street in Woodside Manor.
The deputies were attempting to arrest Marquis F. Brown, 20, after finding a bag of marijuana on him, according to an incident report. Brown lives on Amy Drive in Goose Creek.
A dog from the K-9 unit bit Deputy Shawn James in the leg and caused a puncture wound, likely mistaking him for the suspect, who had run away. Deputy Michael Sharpe suffered injuries during a fight with the suspect, the report said. Both deputies received medical treatment for injuries.
The dog also bit Brown on his arm and chest. Brown was charged with simple possession of marijuana, possession with intent to distribute cocaine and assault while resisting arrest. A check also revealed that Brown had an outstanding warrant through the Goose Creek Police Department.
