Dog makes meal of N.C. deputy's cruiser tires

Associated Press

HOPE MILLS, N.C. — Some dogs chase cars.

One in a North Carolina town decided to try and eat one.

The Cumberland County Sheriff's Office says a pit bull deflated all four tires of a deputy's cruiser near Hope Mills on Sunday.

Spokeswoman Debbie Tanna says the deputy parked his car in a woman's driveway while responding to her complaint about another dog.

When Deputy Lynn Lavallis went to speak with Gloria Bass, the dog chomped into the tires. The dog didn't attack the deputy in the town near Fayetteville.
