MILWAUKEE — Kalin Sunde, the woman who stabbed a K9 dog with the underwire of her bra in a June 4 standoff on Interstate 94, has cut off her GPS monitoring device, according to court records. A bench warrant has been issued.

The 31-year-old was a passenger in a stolen van that was involved in a miles-long chase that started in the Kettle Moraine State Forest. Police saw the driver point a gun out the window, which led to deputies firing at the car, stopping it on State Highway 67 and I-94 and a standoff that lasted for hours.

Sunde used Facebook Live to stream the standoff. She claimed she was a hostage in the car but was an active participant in the incident, according to court documents.

She was charged June 11 with multiple felonies including operating a vehicle without the owner's consent, felony bail jumping, attempting to flee or elude an officer and two counts of failing to comply with the officer's attempt to take a person into custody. She is also charged for striking a police animal using a dangerous weapon, causing injury.

Sunde's next bond hearing is slated for Wednesday.
