MARIETTA, Ga., Jan. 23 (UPI) -- As his pit bull dog attacked a woman, a Marietta, Ga., man did nothing but laugh, police allege.

Tucker was arrested after the incident Wednesday and charged with misdemeanor reckless conduct. He remained in Cobb County Jail on Sunday, held on $25,000 bail, booking records said.
