K9 Roscoe was struck and killed by a vehicle on I-45, in Leon County, while assisting in the search for a subject who fled on foot during a traffic stop.

Several agencies were requested to assist in the search, and a team of tracking dogs was sent from the Texas Department of Criminal Justice's Boyd Unit. The tracking team located the subject at the end of a service road near the interstate at approximately 7:00 pm. Roscoe was struck and killed by a vehicle moments later.

One pound of marijuana was located in the subject's car. He was subsequently charged with interfering with a service animal, evading arrest, and possession.
