Police dog's bite will cost Va. officer $13,000

By Michelle Washington

NORFOLK, Va. — Jurors decided Wednesday that Philip Harvey should get $13,000 for being bitten by the police dog of Gordon Barry, who mistakenly shot and killed a fellow police officer during a disturbance in Young Terrace.

Harvey sued Barry, saying the officer acted recklessly when he let his police dog loose in a crowded courtyard on the 400 block of Nicholson St. in May 2006. Barry testified that he believed his actions would save the life of Harvey's brother, Denardo, who was in a confrontation with an armed man.
