An off-leash dog leads to a fight
October 2, 2015
An off-leash dog encounter led to a fight Monday afternoon between two men on Canyon Links Drive in the Jeremy Ranch area, according the Summit County Sheriff’s Office.
The Sheriff’s Office said the encounter began when an off-leash dog approached another dog and a fight ensued. One man claimed he was head-butted and the other said he swung at him.
However, when deputies arrived, the men were apologetic toward each other and refused to press charges, said Sgt. Ron Bridge. There were no witnesses to the incident, though the men had injuries consistent with a fight, and no citations were issued, Bridge said.
"For there to be a crime, there needs to be victims. It’s hard to prove anything happened when everyone is apologetic," Bridge said. "They could have been cited for disorderly conduct, but the deputy made the decision to go another route."
The case will be forwarded to the county attorney’s office, where charges could still be filed.
