Woman leads police on chase after officer shoots her Pit Bull


TULSA, Okla. – A Tulsa woman said she led police on a chase Monday because she was racing her dog to the vet.

Officers finally stopped 26-year-old Bridget Kurtz at about 2 a.m. when they realized her Pit Bull had been shot.

Police said the woman’s neighbor, an off-duty officer, was checking on noise in the woman’s yard when the dog charged him and he shot it.

A man with the dog took it to the vet.

Officials have not confirmed the dog’s condition.

Tulsa police said Kurtz was arrested on several outstanding warrants and driving without a license.

Authorities said they don’t expect the off-duty officer to be charged.
