Woman Bites Policeman; Dog Stands By
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.
A woman with a pit bull got into an altercation with a cop. The police officer said she was not cleaning up after the dog in a park in Memphis, Tennessee, and he asked for the woman's ID. Seconds later, the officer was bitten. But according to the�Memphis Commercial Appeal, the dog didn't do it. The cop claims it was the woman who bit and also kicked him. As far as we know, the pit bull was perfectly well behaved in that park.
