A new "robot police dog" assisted the Los Angeles Police Department in nearly a three-hour-long standoff with a man on a Hollywood Metro bus who was purportedly carrying a firearm. According to the Los Angeles Police Department, the incident began on Wednesday, November 8, when a bus rider spotted another passenger who looked to be sleeping with a revolver at his feet. After being informed, the bus driver stopped at the junction of Melrose and Western Avenues, where all the passengers disembarked. After getting the man off the bus, authorities used "SPOT," a quadruped unmanned ground vehicle robot, to take the accused into custody. NYPD's Robot Dog Helping Police in City Patrol Goes Viral, Watch Video.
