Vance County Sheriff Recovers From Dog Bite

Posted January 20, 2004

— The old law enforcement theme, "take a bite out of crime," became a bit too real for the Vance County sheriff.

Sheriff Thomas Breedlove was attacked by a dog over the weekend when he approached the home of a man he was trying to arrest.

Breedlove was treated in the emergency room of a local hospital and released.

Breedlove later found the dog's owner in Oxford at his mother's house.
