GROVE, Okla —

The Grove mayor has been cited after police say his girlfriend’s dog bit a boy during a boat show.

The Grand Lake News  reports Mayor Marty Follis was cited for “animals: at large or trespass,” and his girlfriend was cited for “animals: rabies vaccination required.”

Grove Police Chief Mark Morris said Follis and his girlfriend took two German shepherd dogs into the March 12 boat show’s civic center, after being informed by a Grand Lake Association member that the dogs weren’t service dogs and couldn’t be in the center.

One of the dogs later nipped a 7-year-old boy and he suffered a gash to his upper lip. He was taken to a hospital.

The dog’s shot records were out of compliance, police said.

Follis said he takes full responsibility for the incident.
