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.

As police arrested Dinah, Ronnie let go of a beagle he was holding on a leash and shouted, "Sic 'em, Ginger!"

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

In response to TIRED OF STUPIDITY: Is it REALLY that hard to be above the law? Especially with Deputy Duncan, he cant be more than four and a half feet tall! HA!

That's funny in a way. Glad Bill is okay but it's humorous that he was HC Dog Warden  and now as a deputy he gets bit by a dog.

Should have "tazed" the dog and shot Freeman for stupidity... LOL

I got to read silvereagle before SOMEBODY tagged it.....no truer words have been posted since.  Something about the apple not falling too far from the tree.

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

Could this be a typo, should the word "bit" be changed to "humped"?

CG,

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Did he let it finish or is that only with Pit Bulls and Rotties?

The Sandusky Register is so full of crap. If you pull up Freeman's case, it was not picked up as a felony indictment, but thrown back into the muni court because of lack of evidence.

Brute Force

Seriously a Beagle what did it do lick the cop to much now since this happend are they gonna give Beagles a bad name now like they already do with pit bulls come on now.

Dont know bout you guys, but I'd say Mr. Freeman has some beautiful blue eyes! I just noticed, the incident started over Mr. Freeman ALLEGEDLY breaking a car window belonging to his wife. I'm no lawyer but if they are married doesn't the window belong to Mr. Freeman also? what were the police even doing there if there was no crime commited? Mr. Freeman can break his property all he wants. No crime there.....
