Mississippi: Wade Sistrunk charged after his Pit Bulls attacked a jogger

MISSISSIPPI -- Mississippi authorities say a man has been charged after his pit bulls attacked a runner.

The Sun Herald reports Wade Sistrunk was faces three misdemeanor leash-law violations after his dogs attacked a runner Monday.

Authorities say Sistrunk also has an outstanding warrant in Biloxi for possession of paraphernalia.

Jackson County Sheriff Mike Ezell said in a news release that the dogs ran out of the yard to attack the runner. A neighbor came outside and called 911. Ezell says the dogs fled when they saw the neighbor.

The runner was treated and released from a hospital. The dogs have been quarantined under a 10-day bite hold to determine if they're vicious.

Ezell's office didn't know if Sistrunk has an attorney. A telephone message left at Sistrunk's home wasn't immediately returned.
