angry Chihuahuas... silly season news

Pack of angry Chihuahuas attack officer in Fremont
Fremont, Calif. (AP) --

A pack of angry Chihuahuas attacked a police officer who was
escorting a eenager home following a traffic stop, authorities said.

The officer suffered minor injuries including bites to his ankle on
Thursday when the five Chihuahuas escaped the 17-year-old boy's home
and rushed the officer in the doorway, said Fremont detective Bill

The teenager had been detained after the traffic incident, Veteran said.

The officer was treated at a local hospital and returned to work less
than two hours later, Veteran said.

It was the third time this month a Fremont officer was bitten by a dog
while on duty. Neither of the other officers were seriously injured.

And it was the second bizarre incident in as many hours for the
Fremont olice Department.

Two hours earlier, a homeowner in Niles reported that an intruder
broke into her home and added pornography to her computer.

The woman said she woke up and was startled to see a stranger typing
away on her computer. The intruder fled, but left behind an altered
screen saver that featured images of "erotic Indian art," Veteran

Nothing was reported stolen, and neither the woman nor her
nine-year-old daughter was hurt, he said.
