A disturbance last week that led to a Charles City Police officer having to shoot a dog has resulted in charges against a Charles City woman.
The CCPD says they were called to a disturbance in which a person had been assaulted at Waverly Hill Park, the city dog park on 6th Street, just before 5 p.m. September 15th. While officers were investigating the incident, a dog got off its leash and attacked one officer, biting him several times. The dog also bit the owner of the dog and the dog was put down by the officer.
Tuesday, police arrested 39-year-old Dana Noss on a warrant for an assault charge. The criminal complaint accuses Noss of approaching a victim who came to the park with their dog, telling them they could not be there because she (Noss) did not know them. An altercation followed and Noss allegedly hit the victim in the head causing red marks and bruising.
