N.Y. Man Accused of Releasing Pit Bulls on Officers

September 06, 2011  | 

Officers responding to a domestic dispute at a Rochester, N.Y., home faced two charging pit bulls, allegedly released by a man who refused to respond to repeated attempts to contact him.

A Rochester Police officer fired at the lead dog, striking him. The dogs then retreated to the rear of the house, where they were later captured by animal control personnel.

Brandon Jones, 25, is now in jail, and has been charged with a pair of misdemeanors — second-degree reckless endangerment and second-degree obstructing governmental administration.

Why not attempted murder. Pit Bulls have been known to kill and the officers were definitely in fear of there lives because they fired upon the animals. Kudos to the officers for job well done.
