A man suspected of breaking into a home and attacking its residents Sunday night was apprehended Monday after leading law enforcement officers on a chase into the Yaquina River that ended with the man being bitten by a police dog.

Ted Shipley, 28, of Toledo, was arrested Monday and charged with first-degree burglary, criminal mischief, two counts of fourth-degree assault, five counts of menacing, stalking, resisting arrest, third-degree escape and interfering with a law enforcement animal. He was housed at the Lincoln County Jail with no bail as he awaited arraignment as of deadline.
