EAST MEMPHIS, Tenn., April 5 (UPI) -- Police in Tennessee said they arrested a woman who allegedly struggled with officers after refusing to pick up after her dog.

East Memphis police said officers witnessed Kristen Hall, 24, fail to pick up after her pit bull while walking the canine Thursday in the park at Spottswood and Prescott, The (Memphis) Commercial Appeal reported Monday.
