DOGS TAKE BITE OUT OF CRIME - Sorry, we had to. "The apprehension of a man who jumped the White House fence Wednesday night and was bitten by a guard dog highlighted one of the Secret Service’s most effective weapons: its canines ...The two animals were taken to a veterinarian and treated for minor bruising they suffered during the incident, according to agency spokesman Edwin Donovan, while Adesanya was taken to a hospital with injuries from a dog bite and is now in the custody of the U S Marshals Service. 'Both K-9s were cleared for duty by the veterinarian,' Donovan wrote in an e-mail... Adesanya has been charged with two counts of assault on a police officer -- a charge that stems from the attack on the dogs -- along with one count of making threats and four counts of resisting and unlawful entry, Donovan added."
