Queensland police dog bites man on groin after high-speed chase
A Gold Coast man who was bitten on the groin by a police dog after he allegedly sped and drove through red lights in a stolen car has hobbled into court to face dangerous driving charges.
Queensland Police said Kane Dean, 33, was seen speeding through a stationary speed camera at Oxenford just before 8pm on Tuesday in a stolen Ford Laser.
He was then tracked by the PolAir police helicopter which filmed the car being driven dangerously, at high speeds in excess of 100 kilometres per hour, and also through a number of red lights.

The car was tracked through the Gold Coast suburbs of Oxenford, Pacific Pines, Nerang, Broadbeach, Bundall, and Southport.
Police eventually used road spikes to deflate the speeding car’s tyres and the vehicle stopped near a service station at Arundel.
The driver ran from the scene, but he was tracked and located by police dog Bravo and his handler.
It was during the arrest that Bravo bit the man on the groin, who was taken to the Gold Coast University Hospital for treatment.
He was then moved to the Southport watchhouse where he was charged with dangerous driving, unlawful use of a motor vehicle, and unlicensed or disqualified driving.
Dressed in a green tracksuit, Mr Dean limped into a Southport Court this morning where he was remanded in custody by Magistrate Gary Finger to reappear next month via a video link from prison.
Mr Dean did not make a bail application.
