FAIRFAX, Calif. — A pit bull owner was arrested and his dog impounded after it attacked a Fairfax policewoman and a resident at a Little League game.

Fairfax police Cpl. Rhonda Richardson and the resident, Doug Clack, both suffered bite wounds to their hands and wrists during the incident Wednesday night. The injuries were minor, and Richardson planned to return to work for her normal shift Thursday night, said Fairfax police Sgt. Stuart Baker.

The pit bull, an 11-year-old named Breezey, is the same dog that was shot by Fairfax police Chief Chris Morin in 2009. Morin, then a sergeant, was charged by the dog while he was arresting a public intoxication suspect at the public library.
