A Riverside County Sheriff’s Deputy was out to serve a warrant when a dog began to approach him, “aggressively.”

According to a Riverside County sheriff’s spokesperson, the deputy was serving court documents to a resident in the 3000 block of Eucalyptus Avenue at about 2 p.m. when a dog came at him.

The deputy, who has not been named, feared for his safety and pulled out his gun but ended up shooting himself in the process, according to the spokesperson.

The deputy was hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries.

The dog was not hit by any shots and did not attack or bite the officer at all.

According to KCLA9 the police will not be taking any further action against the dog or its owner, who was not the person being served by the officer.

wow, isn't he supposed to be a highly trained professional, able to control and discharge a firearm in a safe manner? shouldn't only highly trained professionals be allowed to carry firearms?

The dog didn't bite or attack because it was to busy laughing.
In typical CA fashion I bet the county will go after the dog owner for the cop's hospital bills.

However, being in California, the dog owner can probably counter sue for his dog claiming emotional distress.
