An off-duty Chicago Police officer was charged with resisting arrest after she allegedly released a pit bull in her yard while officers were trying to arrest her son.
Officer Karen Mickow's son was accused of pouring gasoline on a neighbor's property during a dispute before 1 a.m. Saturday.
When officers arrived at her home in the 5700 block of South Moody to arrest the son, she allegedly told them to "get out." The officers refused and Mickow released the dog, which charged at them, police said.
No one was injured.
Mickow was reassigned to desk duty. It was unclear Tuesday if the son was charged with a crime.
