MANATEE -- A 46-year-old man was arrested after deputies interrupted a possible burglary in progress at business on Manatee Avenue West, according to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office.
Two deputies were patrolling in the 4900 block of Manatee Avenue West about 11:05 p.m. when they heard a loud noise that sounded like an object hitting a window or a door. Deputies went to the rear of Gold Key Title, 4909 Manatee Ave. W., and spotted a man later identified as Quinn Allen Sargent, according to a news release.
As deputies identified themselves, Sargent began to walk away. As one of the deputies started to grab Sargent, a dog he was with bit the deputy on the leg. The second deputy then stunned Sargent, taking him to the ground. Sargent continued to resist so the deputy drive stunned him, which brought him under control, according to the report.
Deputies found that Sargent was carrying a pocket knife that appeared to have on it paint that matched the door and door frame, which had pry marks on them, according to the sheriff's office.

Sargent was being held at the Manatee County jail on charges of attempted burglary and resisting arrest. His bonds totaled $5,750.
