Bears | Police and Courts: D. Sanders
Updating previous reports, the Associated Press reports Chicago Bears TE Darnell Sanders has asked a judge to return his two dogs to him. The dogs were seized after an 82-year-old man was attacked in April. The judge is expected to rule within two weeks. Sanders was in Chicago April 13 when his dogs escaped from a friend and attacked 82-year old Ernie Assad as he watered his garden in Parma, Ohio. Assad was treated and released from a hospital, but developed a blood clot and died 11 days later. No criminal charges have been filed, but, as previously noted, Assad's heirs have filed a $1 million wrongful-death lawsuit against Sanders and others. Sanders' lawyer said the two dogs did nothing more than knock Assad down, but an animal control officer said Assad was bitten at least seven times.
