CIVIL — A report at 12:39 p.m. Monday on the 200 block of Fourth Avenue Northwest in Little Falls where officers were going to serve a warrant. After knocking on the door, two dogs ran around from behind the residence and became aggressive. An officer motioned for them to get back and the smaller one attempted to bite him several times. The officer kicked at it, then fired his taser in order to get it away from him. The top dart stuck onto the dog’s nose, and it ran away. A minute later it came back to the residence and hid under the camper. The dog then started wandering around the neighborhood and was still growling at the officer. Another officer assisted and another man was able to gain control of the dog and placed him in the back fenced-in yard. The officer left a note about the dog and later in the day a woman had been able to remove the dart.
