STEPHENSON COUNTY, Ill. (WIFR) -- A man wanted on a warrant was so impressed by the K-9 team who tracked him down that he posed for a photo in handcuffs.

Winnebago County deputy Stan Metzler and his K-9 partner Cliff responded to a call to assist Stephenson County's deputies and help track down the suspect.

The suspect, Cody Saxby, was wanted on a Wisconsin DOC warrant and a Stephenson County domestic battery warrant, according to a Facebook post​ from the sheriff's office.

Saxby was stopped after a 2.5-mile chase. He congratulated Metzler in the photo by shaking his hand.
