A woman let three officers into the residence, and after they entered a basement-level room, she opened the door to a bedroom where two dogs were secured. One dog came “charging out” aggressively, Volesky said.
“They were fearful that he was going to attack or bite them,” she said.
The dog’s co-owner, Priscilla Gutierrez, 30, was arrested on suspicion of assault and domestic violence. Her boyfriend was dog’s other owner.
No officers or other people were injured in the incident.
Man, the amount of lead flying around in the Fort is getting thick. Is January going to be named target practice month. The real question is will these officers be investigated for animal abuse. I can think of many different ways to subdue a dog other than using it for target practice.
