Lawman shoots his own foot trying to fight off pit bull attack

A deputy constable shot himself in the foot Thursday morning while trying to fend off a pit bull attack, authorities said.
Deputy C. Menefield was in the process of evicting a tenant from a residence in the 13900 block of Wrigley when the man opened the door and allegedly ordered a dog inside the home to attack, said DeAnn Collins, a Precinct 7 spokeswoman.

She said the pit bull lunged at Menefield's leg. As the deputy tried to kick the dog away, he fired his gun, shooting himself in the left foot, Collins said. The dog ran back inside at the sound of the shot and was later taken to the city pound.

Menefield, a five-year veteran, was transported to Memorial Hermann Hospital. He was released in good condition and was recovering Thursday night at home, Collins said.

The dog's owner, 41-year-old Alan Trevino, was charged with making a terroristic threat, a Class B misdemeanor, she said. Collins said Trevino had been notified of the eviction date.

The deputy had arrived with a locksmith and a moving company.

Trevino, who has a "very lengthy criminal history," was inside, refusing to leave when he allegedly ordered his dog to attack, Collins said.

This kind of press isnt due to a byb breeder is it? Just kidding. It's unfortunate that things like this happen. For it to be a class b misdemeanor is really the problem at hand! If I catch a D.U.I. it's class a, not b. Even if I didnt hit a tree its class a. I cant understand the laws these days. Our country has convicted child molesters and murderers walking the streets while street thugs who only got caught with $100.00 worth of cocaine get life.
