A Pulaski County, Mo., detective is recovering after he was attacked by a dog during the arrest of a former police officer, reports KMIZ.

David Milcendeau, 56, was arrested without incident for sexual assault charges. He was a former police officer.

During the apprehension a German shepherd broke his chain and attacked a County detective. The dog caused significant, but not serious, injuries and attempted to attack other deputies at the scene.

Witnesses said the suspect's dog was known for being vicious, and was put down.

Sad but the dog was doing what its instincts are, protect the owner. Not the dogs fault. These things happen, apparently the dog was chined but broke lose so really doesn't seem to be anyones fault, just a hazard of the job. Hope the Det recovers. Im sure with the history that the dog had it is good that it was put down.
