Bane's name come from the movie "The Dark Knight Rises."

The Sheriff's Office said Neigebauer is a big fan of "Batman." 

After K-9 Joker retired, Neigebauer wanted to keep the tradition of "Batman" villains on the team.

But don't be deceived by his name, because K-9 Bane is ready to fight crime and help put real villains behind bars.

Welcome to the team!
