On Oct. 20, White Hall police officers were sent to 311 Robin St., in response to two vicious dogs.


According to a report from Assistant Chief of Police Paul Brown, Mrs. Bill Herring said she was outside when a German Shepherd and a black mixed pit-bull-type dog confronted her in her yard. She said the dogs came toward her growling and being very aggressive. She said she tried to get away from the dogs and fell while she was trying to get back inside her residence. She said the dogs ran toward White Hall City Park.


Brown reported that officers continued to look for the dogs when they were dispatched to White Hall City Hall where it was reported that the dogs had charged Kim Scallion and other people who were trying to enter the building to do business. Sgt. John Zuber reported seeing the dogs go into a fenced area located behind the White Hall Fire Department where the city of White Hall stores equipment.


According to the report, officers secured the gates leading into the fenced area and animal control was notified. While waiting on animal control, Officers Bryan Hornsby, Stephen Moreau and Brown were standing watch by the west gate when both dogs charged the officers in an aggressive manner. The German Shepherd was subsequently captured by animal control but the pit bull managed to escape through an open area of fence behind the city shop. The pit bull ran into the park, which was occupied by city workers, several citizens and small children.


Brown said in the report that officers responded to the park but were unable to locate the dog. A short time later, officers received a call that the dog was back at Mrs. Herring’s residence and Brown and Zuber responded to that location. As Zuber pulled into the driveway, Brown reported that he saw the dog coming at him down the fence line.


"I waited until the dog was around the fence and in front of a wooden storage building beside a residence at 309 Robin Street," Brown said in the report. "I fired four rounds at the pit bull from my department issued Ruger 10/22 rifle. All four rounds struck the dog and the dog ran to a residence around the corner, located at 507 Winchester St. The dog went into the yard of this residence. I contacted the animal control officers and they responded to my location."


According to the report, when animal control officers arrived at the scene, the dog ran into the yard at 609 Winchester St. and went under the mobile home at that address. Animal control officers tried to remove the dog but it went back to 607 Winchester St. and crawled under a mobile home at that residence. Animal control offices were able to capture the dog and took it to the White Hall Veterinary Clinic where it was euthanized.

During a search following the arrest, Castleberry reported finding a small plastic bag containing two green oval tablets that Castleberry identified using the Drug Identification Bible as 1 milligram of Alprazolam, a Schedule VI controlled substance.


Castleberry said in the report that he called for a duty wrecker and, when Phillips learned that he was going to jail and his grandmother’s van was going to be towed, he began to complain of chest pains, telling Castleberry he wasn’t having a heart attack but thought it was anxiety.


Buffkin recommended that the nurse at the jail check out Phillips, and Phillips was transported to the adult detention center on driving on a suspended driver’s license and possession of a controlled substance. The nurse at the jail checked out Phillips and said his heart rate and blood pressure were slightly elevated and recommended he be taken to Jefferson Regional Medical Center Emergency Room to be evaluated.
