BRYAN — A dog was shot and killed on Friday as law enforcement officers were attempting to make an arrest on a warrant in Springfield Township.

According to Williams County Sheriff Steve Towns, at approximately noon, a deputy was assisting a parole officer who was serving a warrant on Jamie Lucas, 33, Bryan, in the 03000 block of County Road 19. A pitbull mix dog reportedly charged officers.

“The dog came at the officer in an aggressive manner,” explained Towns. “The dog was charging and the officer tried to retreat. He shot and killed the dog. He didn’t have a lot of options.”

Lucas was then arrested and taken to the Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio, rural Stryker, pending a court appearance.
