Officer Attacked by Dog

A Glasgow police officer is recovering from minor injuries after being attacked by a pit bull.

Officer Eric Guffey and Officer Jason Richerson responded to a call of someone yelling on Sporran Way. When they arrived, they found a victim bitten by a pit bull.

The officers pepper-sprayed the dog which lunged at Officer Guffey. It latched onto the officer and both Guffey and the dog went over the deck railing.

In order to protect themselves the officers had to kill the pit bill in the struggle.

Officer Guffey was taken to T.J. Samson hospital where he was treated and released.
