A 19-year-old woman was arrested Sunday after allegedly biting a dog during an argument with her mother after returning drunk to her home.

Analise J. Garner, 19, of the 300 block of Village Creek Drive in Lake in the Hills, was charged, police Sgt. Mark Smith said.

Officers responded to a disturbance at Garner’s home around 4 a.m. Sunday. Garner’s mother confronted her about coming home late and being drunk, Smith said.

Garner scratched and hit her 37-year-old mother in face, Smith said. She also bit her mother’s hand.

The family’s white, 80-pound, English bulldog was also bit three times on his back and shoulder. Garner was treated for a bite mark when the dog bit her arm, Smith said.

“The dog was defending himself,” Smith said. “The dog was not charged.”
