Md. Woman Arrested After Pit Bull Attacks OfficerWALDORF, Md. (AP)

The Charles County sheriff's office says a woman was arrested after ordering her pit bull to attack an officer.

Authorities say they received a call on Tuesday about a woman with her pit bull who refused to leave the lobby of a doctor's office in Waldorf. Officers arrived and asked 21-year-old Courtney Jones of Upper Marlboro to leave.

But officials say Jones refused and officers escorted her outside. They say she suddenly stopped and ordered the dog to attack. The pit bull began biting the officer's foot, which was protected by a boot.

Authorities say Jones kicked and yelled during her arrest, and shattered the rear passenger window of the officer's cruiser.

Another officer took control of the dog.

Jones faces first-degree assault, reckless endangerment and other charges.

I love love LOVE that the dog was not shot in this. I wonder if he will be euth'd or not.

My dogs won't even get off the couch when I ask them, let alone "attack" on command.

I hope just she gets in trouble for this - not the dog.
