Dog flattens deputy’s tires
Authorities in North Carolina said a pit bull used its powerful jaws to flatten the tires of a deputy's patrol car.
Debbie Tanna, spokeswoman for the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office, said Deputy Lynn Lavallis responded Sunday evening to a call placed by Gloria Bass, who told dispatchers her daughter was being chased by a dog that was attempting to bite her bicycle tire, the Fayetteville (N.C.) Observer reported Tuesday.
The dog didn't try to attack the deputy. He just doesn't like tires, Tanna said.
Tanna said Bass will be billed $504.60 for the cost of the tires. No action was taken against the dog because it was on its owner's property and did not injure anyone.
