CHATTANOOGA, TENN. â€” What happened to a Chattanooga police officerâ€™s car was certainly under the radar.
A city police spokeswoman said Sunday that Officer Clayton Holmes had been checking traffic speeds with radar and stopped to fill out a report when he felt his car shaking. He found a bulldog chewing on the tires.
After the dog attacked two passing cars and a second police car, officers used pepper spray and a Taser on it, but the animal wasnâ€™t deterred.
By the time McCamey Animal Center staffers captured that dog and two others, it had chewed two tires and the entire front bumper off Holmesâ€™ patrol car.
Officer Rebecca Royval said the dogs got out of a fence at a nearby welding shop. The owner was cited and the dogs were removed.
