(WDRB) -- Hillview Police say they've arrested a Louisville man after his PIT BULL attacked another dog, then ran into a neighbor's home and pounced onto a couch next to a four-year-old girl.
According to an arrest report, the incident occurred Monday, just after 11:30 p.m., on Gofton Court, near the intersection of Summit Drive and Sanna Drive.
Police say officers were dispatched to a home on that street on a report of a dispute.
When they arrived, they allegedly found 23-year-old Cameron Crosby in the front yard of his home, "being combative, yelling and screaming."
Police say they talked to a female neighbor who said that Crosby's pit bull attacked her dog in the front yard, ran into her home, and jumped on the couch next to her four-year-old daughter.
The woman allegedly told officers she had to beat the dog with a broom to get it out of the house.
According to the arrest report, when officers approached Crosby to ask him about the allegations, he started toward the officers "in an aggressive manner," at which time he was taken to the ground. Police say he "put up a fight" before being handcuffed, stating that he was going to kill one of the officers.
Crosby had a "strong odor" of alcohol coming from his person, and was very unsteady on his feet, according to police.
He was arrested and charged with harboring a vicious animal, menacing, alcohol intoxication in a public place and terroristic threatening.
The pit bull was taken to Bullitt County Animal Services.
