A Chattanooga Police officer, while running radar at 1410 Workman Road on Sunday night, had his patrol car attacked by a ferocious bulldog.

Officer Clayton Holmes said he had stopped to work on a report when he felt his car shaking. He got out to investigate and what he found was a bulldog chewing on his patrol car.

The dog chewed two tires and the entire front bumper off of the car.

The dog also attacked two cars belonging to private citizens driving by and a second police car that arrived at the scene during the incident.

OC spray and a taser was used on the dog, but nothing stopped it.

McKamey Animal Center personnel responded to the scene and managed to capture the bulldog along with two other dogs with it.

The dogs were kept inside the fenced property at Mann’s Welding, but managed to get out.

The owner of the dogs, Nancy Emerling, was cited by McKamey.

All three dogs were removed from the property.
