A man who set his dog loose to attack a Huron County Sheriff's deputy is now facing a charge of assaulting a police officer.
A Huron County grand jury on Monday indicted Ronnie G. Freeman Jr., 27, for the Dec. 23 incident.
Sheriff's deputies responded to an argument between Freeman and his wife, Cheryl, 25, at a home in the 26000 block of Ohio 13 in Greenwich after he allegedly smashed her car window. A fight over the custody of their children followed, and Ronnie's mother, Dinah Freeman, then 49, began to argue loudly with deputies, according to reports.

The dog jumped onto Deputy Bill Duncan and bit his leg.
