A north-central Indiana man accused of auto theft also faces charges alleging that he threatened to eat his arresting officers, their entire families and their police dogs.

The Journal & Courier reports 39-year-old Paul M. Brock of Frankfort was charged Wednesday with auto theft, resisting law enforcement, intimidation and operating a vehicle while intoxicated.

He remained jailed Thursday on a $25,000 bond at the Tippecanoe County Jail.

Lafayette police arrested Brock last Friday using police dogs to subdue him after he allegedly stole a car from a gasoline station.

A short time later Brock allegedly told officers at a hospital that he would hunt them down and eat them, their families and their dogs.

Police said Brock had a blood-alcohol content more than three times Indiana's legal limit.
