The Little Rock Police Department reports that one of its K-9 "officers" a dog known as Ammo, has been restricted to home quarters in Alexander after escaping his pen and biting two neighbors. The report:

On 8-4-14 our agency was notified by Saline County that one of our K-9 officers was able to escape his pin, jump the six foot privacy fence, go across the street and bite two neighbors. At least one of the victims was transported to St. Vincent’s Hospital for his injuries. The K-9 bite is being treated as a vicious dog bite by Saline County. The K-9 is at home but cannot report to work for 10 days under Saline County vicious dog ordinance.

The K-9 handler [Jason Harris, according to Saline County authorities] was not at home at the time of the incident. Emergency personnel responded to the residence where they located the K-9 in his driveway.

The K-9, Ammo, has been with the department at least three years. His breed is Dutch Shepard.

The Saline sheriff's office said two men were bit on Quail Ridge Drive in Alexander — Norman Beth, 73, and Trent Holloway, 35. Both were taken to a hospital for treatment. Beth's injuries weren't immediately known. Holloway, who'd been doing yard work, said he was bitten on the leg. The dog became aggressive when he tried to grab its collar for identification.

Here's the Saline report.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
