VIDEO: Kansas Man Attacks Officer by Swinging Small Dog on a Leash

A Park City, Kansas, man is facing a charge of animal cruelty after police say he tried to swing a small dog on a leash as a weapon to attack a police officer.

On Sunday night, the officer stopped the suspect after calls that a suspicious person had been seen in the area. The officer found 26-year-old Michael Rush walking a dog through people's backyards.

After trying to talk to him, the officer says Rush swung the dog on a leash at him, KSN TV reports.

"I've seen people try to use a dog and sic it on someone as a weapon, but I've never seen someone pick up a dog and swing it through the air to use it as a weapon before; that's a first," said Chief Phil Bostain, Park City Police Department.

The dog was not hurt and is now in the animal shelter.

I hope that they get him on assaulting an officer and on animal cruelty. That takes a coward in the lowest form.

What a p.o.s. coward. I hope someone adopts that dog, and this m.f. isn't allowed to own any pets.

The sad part is they court will do nothing about any of this.
