Not going down without a fight

Authorities in Nevada report busting one tough cookie.

Elko County sheriff's deputies say 19-year-old suspected prowler Kevin Larrinaga was zapped with a Taser twice and bitten by a police dog three times.

He finally gave up.

Deputies responding to a prowler call report Larrinaga appeared to be drunk when they found him in his vehicle.

Deputies say he refused to show his hands or get out, so they sent the dog in after him.

He was taken into custody after three bites and two zaps.

Larrinaga now faces a number of charges, including attempted burglary and obstructing an officer.
