Man Charged with Assaulting Police with Dog Leash
A 50 year old Rimersburg man has been charged for assaulting State Troopers with a dog leash. When State Troopers tried to speak with Robert Anderson about an earlier incident he allegedly tried to run and then became combative and shouted expletives at police. He removed the leash from the dog he was walking and used it to strike a State Trooper and needed to be hit multiple times with tasers before he went down. Anderson’s dog bit a trooper in the leg, it was restrained and then placed in the care of a neighbor.
