A Hopkinsville Police Officer was bitten by a dog while investigating a loud music call Saturday night, with the animal's owner arrested.
Officers Robert Sibal and Andre Jacobs went to 1400 East 19th Street just before 10 p.m. to the report of loud music coming from a home. Police could see stereo speakers in the window of the home and Officer Sibal writes he identified himself as police and shined his flash light in the front window as he approached the residence.
As police approached the front door, 46-year old James Boyd of Hopkinsville allegedly opened the door allowing a dog to charge Officer Sibal, who was bitten on his elbow. Officer Sibal reported bleeding and swelling from the incident.
Police says Boyd has a history of having a vicious dog. He was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct, harboring a vicious animal and wanton endangerment.
