An accused car thief has been bitten on the groin by a police dog overnight after a chase across the Gold Coast.
Police pursued a stolen vehicle to Arundel after it was spotted speeding by their chopper in Oxenford around 8pm on Tuesday.
It eventually pulled over on Brisbane Road when officers took out its tyres with tyre spikes, before the driver took off on foot.
A 33-year-old man was eventually tracked down and arrested by the dog squad, suffering the bite to his privates in the process.
He was taken to hospital under police guard, while a police officer was also injured in the pursuit, falling down an embankment while looking for the man and breaking his collarbone.
