Police dog bites child

BRAZIL, Ind. -- A police canine bit a child inside the Clay County courthouse.

According to the police chief, the 11-year-old boy was bitten on his calf.

Canine officer Max is off-duty for now as the police unit works to figure out what triggered the unusual aggressive behavior.

"Our department policy is to take the dog off the street for a few days, make some determinations as to what happened, make sure everything was done properly; have the dog to a veterinarian, make sure we follow the rules like everybody else is supposed to do when a dog bite occurs," said Police Chief Clint McQueen.

The chief says the dog was unable to discern between actual duty and a simple demonstration.

The boy is expected to be okay.
