Police woman dog attack: Brierfield owner skips court
A woman whose dog bit a police officer again failed to turn up to court for sentencing.
PC Ruth Syers was repeatedly bitten by Sandra Wardle’s Staffordshire bull terrier, Kitso, when she attended a disturbance at a house in Rylands Street in May.
Wardle (58), of Burnley Road, Brierfield, was charged with being drunk and disorderly, failing to comply with a dog control order and allowing a dog out of control to cause injury.
Judge Beverly Lunt ordered a bench warrant not backed for bail to bring Wardle to court.
