Washington County deputies shoot, kill dog during domestic violence call
Published 03/26/2007 By Timesnews.net staff report

Washington County deputies shot and killed a pit bull after its owner ordered it to attack them, Sheriff Ed Graybeal said Monday.

Officers went to 454 Oak Grove Road around 1:30 a.m. Monday where a woman told them her boyfriend had assaulted her.

When deputies went into the residence, the alleged suspect, Terry Allen Kelly, 50, was near the rear of the residence.

Kelly's girlfriend also went into the house to try to put Kelly's pit bull outside.

But officers said Kelly ordered the dog to bite the officers. The dog lunged toward the deputies, and they shot it, Graybeal said.

The victim told deputies that Kelly had been training the dog to attack on command.

Kelly was arrested on charges of aggravated assault, domestic violence and resisting arrest. He has a $27,000 bond
and was arraigned on the charges in Jonesborough General Sessions Court.
