Man bites dog

KFAR SABA, Israel, March 25 (UPI) -- A police dog in Kfar Saba, Israel, had to be taken to a veterinarian after being bitten by a man, authorities say.

In a real-life example of the journalistic aphorism of what qualifies as news -- dog biting man doesn't, but man biting dog does -- police said the man became unruly while detained at a Kfar Saba police station Thursday and officers commanded the dog to take him down.

The dog complied but the man bit it, necessitating a trip to the veterinarian, Ynetnews reported.

The man, whose name wasn't reported, had been brought to the station for allegedly violating a restraining order obtained by his wife. He also allegedly had threatened to jump out a window and attempted to assault an officer with a screwdriver before being taken into custody.

Now he faces an additional charge of assaulting a police dog and remained in custody pending further court proceedings, the news Web site said.
