It Wasn't The Dog That Bit The Cop, It Was The Dog's Owner

There was a pit pull and an officer who was bitten in this story. But Memphis police say it wasn’t the dog doing the biting.

A Memphis woman who was adamant about not cleaning up after her dog in a park has been charged with assaulting a police officer, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.

It all started on Thursday when officers saw Kristen Anise Hall’s pit bull defecate and watched Hall walk on.

When police told her she needed to clean up the mess, she refused and said she walked her dog there often and never scooped up after it.

When police asked for her identification, Hall is accused of kicking and biting an officer.

She was subdued with help from backup officers.
