DETROIT (AP) - Authorities have charged a Detroit man who they say unleashed his bulldog on a police officer while trying to flee, causing injury to the officer.

The Wayne County prosecutor’s office says 36-year-old Darrel Campbell is charged with counts including felonious assault, dangerous animal causing serious injury and resisting and obstructing causing injury.

Authorities say police investigated Campbell at a home Sunday when he released the 100-pound bulldog. They say the dog bit the officer. Campbell was arrested later that day. It’s unclear how badly the officer was injured.

The dog was euthanized Tuesday.

Campbell was ordered held on $50,000 bond. It wasn’t immediately clear if he has an attorney.
