A Reynoldsburg Division of Police officer dealt with a pit bull in his face at a local school and ended up citing the owner, a 54-year-old Reynoldsburg resident, for allowing animals to run at large.
The officer said he was dispatched at 6:15 p.m. May 20 to Baldwin Road Junior High School, 2300 Baldwin Place, on an animal complaint.
He said a woman was allowing two large black dogs and a medium-size, brown and white pitbull mix to run around without being leashed.
"I told (the woman) to put a leash on her dogs," the officer wrote in the report. "She refused ... and then the brown/white dog jumped up and its snout hit the bottom of my chin."
The officer said he gave the woman a citation for animals running at large, but she refused to sign it.
"I gave her the pink copy of the charge and cleared the scene," the officer wrote in the police report.
