The dog was arrested for assault on a police officer.

Cop tries to shoot dog, shoots other cop instead.
Authorities say Minneapolis police were assisting the Department of Corrections with a fugitive warrant at a nearby home. We're told the suspect fled out of the back door followed by two pit bulls. Officers, feeling threatened, fired at the dogs and a bullet struck a veteran officer in the leg.

I have never felt threatened by a dog that was running away from me. Maybe those pitbulls were going for reinforcements?

Smartest creatures involved were the pitbulls.

Makes you wonder where they find all these lily livered, shriveled wienie "cops" anyway.
