DA won't charge Palo Alto cop who sicced dog on innocent man

A Palo Alto police officer who sicced his dog on an innocent man during a suspect search in Mountain View last summer will not be charged with any crimes, the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office announced Monday. Joel Domingo Alejo was asleep in a back yard on Sierra Vista Avenue in Mountain View in the early morning hours of June 25 when Nicholas Enberg, whose title is police agent, ordered his police dog to attack Alejo.

Police had gotten residents’ consent to search a back yard, but said residents did not know that Alejo, a relative, was still there following a birthday party held the previous day. Alejo, who was sleeping in a shed area, was bitten within seconds of Enberg entering the yard, and afterward trailing Mountain View officers determined he was not the man they were looking for.

In a statement to this news organization, Assistant District Attorney Brian Welch said the use of force did not trigger a compulsory review by his office because Alejo’s injuries were not life-threatening. “Based on our review of the case materials, we have concluded that Agent Enberg’s use of his police dog did not result in the use of excessive force under the color of authority,” Welch said in the statement.
