Dog Bites Cop

K-9 unit doggy bites cop, sends officer to hospital.
Just saw this on tv station news.

"Officers responded to an alarm at the school, located at 2735 Northeast 82nd Avenue, at 5:56 a.m., police said. As the officers and a K-9 unit prepared to enter the school, police said they saw two suspects run out of the school and into a fog bank.

Police said officers and the K-9 began chasing the suspects on foot, but due to the dense fog during the chase, a police dog bit one of the officers in pursuit."

Whoopsie!

But never fear, the police are on top of this case.
Later in the news story:
"Police said the suspects are descibed as two people wearing dark clothing."

If you see anyone wearing dark clothing, do not try to apprehend them yourselves.
