Sequatchie woman arrested after allowing dog to bite Marion deputy

SEQAUTCHIE, Tenn. — A woman is now behind bars in Marion County after authorities say she allowed her dog to attack a Marion County Sheriff’s deputy over the weekend.

According to Marion County Sheriff Ronnie “Bo” Burnett, the incident happened on Sunday evening at a home located at 210 Pine Street in Sequatchie when deputies responded to a domestic disturbance call.

The Sheriff says after Officer Justin Graham knocked on the door of the home, the suspect reportedly opened the door and stepped out of the way letting her pit bull dog have a clear line through the door, attacking the officer.

Graham suffered several deep bite marks on his hand and was taken to an area hospital for treatment. Sheriff Burnett says that the wounds didn’t require stitches and he will fully recover from the incident.

The owner of the dog, Tiffany Foshee, has been charged with aggravated assault on an officer and is being held at the Marion County Jail with no bond.

The Sheriff says deputies impounded the dog and it will be tested for rabies.
