MURRAY COUNTY, GEORGIA (INTELLIHUB) —An overzealous police officer was recently shown the power of karma after celebrating the arrest of a nonviolent person.
After a drug raid, an anonymous Murray County police officer attempted to take a “selfie” photo with one of the drug dogs.
The officer sat down beside the dog and put his arm around it when he
tried to take the picture. However, this specific officer was not the
dogs trainer or handler, so the dog felt uncomfortable and responded by
attacking the officer.
Following the attack, the officer was taken to the hospital where he
needed surgery. He was recently released from the hospital, but is
still recovering from injuries.
In an email to WRCB Channel 3, the officer explained that:
“I had my phone in my hand when the dog began rubbing its body
against my legs and the legs of another deputy. The dog raised up and
put his front feet on the other deputy’s chest and then he did the same
to me. While he had his feet on my chest and I was petting him with my
left hand, I thought that would make a good photo. It was then that he
bit me. There was no ‘pre-planned selfie.’”
