Man, deputy seek shelter on cruiser after being chased by pit bulls

EL RENO, Okla. -- The owner of two dogs has been cited after the pets caused a ruckus near a school in Oklahoma last week.

According to the El Reno Tribune, Canadian County Deputy Barrett Storm jumped into action when he saw a man running and screaming while being chased by two pit bulls.

The Tribune's Ray Dyer says the man was running backwards and was trying to keep the dogs away with a jacket.

At that point, Storm parked his patrol car and Storm and the man jumped on the hood of the cruiser to avoid the dogs.

Storm says when the dogs tried to wander, he would bang his baton on the car to keep them there until animal control arrived.

Fortunately, the dogs did not bite anyone and their owner was eventually cited for allowing them to run at large.
