Chattanooga devil dog eats cop cruiser

Pepper spray and Taser cannot tame bulldog beast

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Vid Chattanooga cops have released a video of a one-sided encounter between officer Clayton Holmes's police cruiser and a local devil dog.

According to the Chattanooga Times Free Press, Holmes was "running radar" and had stopped to file a report when he "reported he felt his car shaking and upon investigating he found the bulldog chewing on his patrol car":

The beast subsequently attacked two private cars and a second cop vehicle which attended the scene. Pepper spray and a Taser failed to subdue the creature, and it fell to McKamey Animal Center operatives to capture it along with two other canines belonging to one Nancy Emerling.

The mephistophelean mutt was released yesterday on "good behavior" back into the custody of its owner, AP notes. ®
