WALTON, KY (FOX19) -

Two burglary suspects are in custody after one of them drove a vehicle at a Boone County sheriff's deputy at a high rate of speed, dispatchers said.

The deputy was not hurt in the incident about 2 a.m. on Maiden Court, according to Boone County dispatchers.

Sheriff's deputies were dispatched at approximately 1:50 a.m. to the Maiden Court apartment building in Walton for a burglary in progress.

The resident there told dispatchers he was awakened by knocking on his door and someone was on his second floor balcony breaking into his sliding glass door.

Officials said as the first deputy on the scene approached a man climbing down the balcony in question, another man in a silver SUV gunned it toward the deputy, fleeing for a short time.

Additional responding deputies set up a perimeter as a Florence Police K-9 unit began a search, subsequently locating the SUV a couple of streets over in the backyard of a house on Foxhunt Drive.

The driver, Anthony Wilhite, 29, of Westwood,  was tracked and bitten by the canine.  He was taken to St. Elizabeth hospital for treatment. 

The second man, Dominic Jackson, 23 of  North Avondale, was tracked and quickly surrendered before being bitten.

Wilhite faces charges of attempted burglary, possession of burglary tools, fleeing and evading, wanton endangerment, operating on a suspended license, and two counts of criminal mischief.

Jackson faces charges of attempted burglary, possession of burglary tools, fleeing and evading, and one count of criminal mischief.
