Cowardly criminal uses 6-year-old son as shield against K9 Cop

CANTON, OH (WOIO) - A Canton dad is now behind bars after using his son as a shield against Canton Police.

Tyron S. Butler, 26, was arrested at his Young Avenue home Monday morning on felony charges of child endangering, rape and aggravated burglary.

This, after Butler reportedly forced his way into a woman's home and forced his victim to have sexual intercourse with him.

Police arrived at Butler's home to make the arrest with their K-9 cop and Butler shoved his own 6-year-old son in front of him, using him as a shield from the dog.

No word on whether or not the child was injured at this time.

Butler had a previous warrant out for his arrest for endangering children and criminal damaging.
