Man charged with trespassing in Manatee County mom's home bit by canine

MANATEE -- A man was arrested at 2:05 p.m. Tuesday and charged with trespassing in his mother's home and fleeing from law enforcement, according to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office.

Jeffery Borden, 56, reportedly began to move into his 76-year-old mother's home in the 6200 block of 12th Street East, Bradenton, while she was not home. When she returned, deputies said Borden's mother told him he was not living there and to get out.

After deputies arrived, Borden's mother told him again he had to leave. He refused.

Jeff locked himself inside a bedroom and refused to come out, according tom a report. Jeff was ordered out of the room several times and replied: "I'm not going anywhere. You're going to have to kill me."

As deputies got into the room he fled out the rear door into the backyard. A deputy grabbed Borden's shoulder and a canine bit Borden's right chest and then bit and held onto his right arm, the sheriff's office reported.

Borden was charged with trespassing and resisting arrest, according to the release. Borden was treated for his bite before being transported to jail.

Booking information for Borden was not immediately available.
