GROVE, Okla. (AP) - The Grove mayor has been cited after police say his girlfriend’s dog bit a boy during a boat show.

The Grand Lake News (https://bit.ly/1R5YQgG ) 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. Police say 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.

Police say the dog’s shot records were out of compliance.

Follis says he takes full responsibility for the incident.
