GREEN TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -

A 21-year-old is facing multiple charges after allegedly breaking into a Green Township home Friday and assaulted an officer and K-9 unit.

Drake Eaton, 21, allegedly broke into a home on Shelrich Court near Jessup Road. The resident, who was sleeping at the time, woke up to Eaton saying "hello" from a hallway outside of the resident's room.  The resident asked Eaton who he was and Eaton responded saying "I am you."  The suspect left the home after the resident told him to leave, according to an affidavit.

A police officer and K-9 unit responded for a burglary suspect in Green Township and they located Eaton in a field near the rear yard of a house on Castle Stone Lane, a little more than a mile from the Shelrich Court home, police say.

After giving verbal commands to the suspect, Eaton reportedly stood in an aggressive manner and threatened to kill the officer, according to the affidavit.  He then allegedly put the officer in a head lock and grabbed the police dog by the throat.

Officials say the officer escaped the head lock and arrested Eaton.

Eaton was charged with two counts of assault, one count assaulting or harassing a police dog, one count resisting arrest and one count burglary.
