A former Lincoln Countyâ€™s sheriff suffered a dog bite last week while exercising near a local elementary school, a police report said.
A black pitbull bit Tim Daugherty on his back right calf Wednesday evening while he was jogging on Kennedy Street, near S. Ray Lowder Elementary School, authorities said.
He was not seriously injured, but Animal Control still charged the dogâ€™s owner with a citation, the report noted. Police located the dog at its residence.
Daugherty served as Lincoln County sheriff from 2006 to 2010, when he lost his re-election bid in the Democratic primary.
