BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A Maryland deputy is recovering in the hospital after being bit by a dog while trying to serve two outstanding warrants.
The Anne Arundel County Sheriff’s Office deputy went to a home on Thompson Ave., in Severn, to serve outstanding warrants for Jose Arrucha Sunday morning.
While the deputy was inside the home, a dog bit his calf. A resident helped the deputy get free from the dog.
The deputy was taken to a hospital to be treated for the puncture wounds. The dog has been placed in a 10-day quarantine.
No further details were released about the incident, and the sheriff’s office did not release what kind of dog it was.
Arrucha was not found at the home.
