FREMONT, Calif. — A pack of angry Chihuahuas attacked a police officer who was escorting a teenager home after a traffic stop, authorities said.
The officer suffered minor injuries, including bites to his ankle, police Detective Bill Veteran said.
The five Chihuahuas escaped the 17-year-old boy’s home and rushed the officer as he stood in the doorway Thursday, authorities said. The teenager had been detained after the traffic incident.
The officer was treated at a hospital and returned to work less than two hours later.
