Clark County deputies arrested a 39-year-old man Friday night after nearly being attacked by a pit bull.

Deputies said they tried to serve an arrest warrant on Keith Mumma at 160 Neosha Ave. The warrant was issued from domestic violence and assault charges earlier in the day.

As they entered the yard, they said Mumma released a pit bull out of the back door.

They said the dog came at them, and they were barely able to get out of the yard.

Deputies said Mumma went back inside the house.

They contacted the Clark County Humane Society which was able to secure the dog.

Deputies said Mumma then came outside, and was arrested.

In addition to warrants for domestic violence and assault, Mumma now faces two charges of felonious assault on a police officer.

Mumma is scheduled to appear in Clark County Municipal Court Monday at 10:30 a.m.

“We notice lately a lot of people coming looking for that,” said Sam Abbas, who owns NYC Ink Studio in Manhattan.

“I think it looks nice, but if you really think what it’s doing to the body – and you can have scarring – it’s so many complications that can happen from it,” Cynthia Rivas told WCBS.

The biggest issue is keeping the area around the piercing clean. Abbas suggests cleaning the finger at least two or three times. When seeking a piercing artist, it’s also important to gauge his or her experience, Abbas said.

“You’re dealing with the blood, so you got to be very, very safe,” Abbas told WCBS. “What we do, we sterilize everything.”

The embedding process takes about 10 minutes. An artist marks a spot with a pen, cleans the area with alcohol and iodine and then inserts an anchor -- typically made of gold or titanium -- to hold the diamond, WCBS reported.

The procedure costs approximately $100; the selected gem has an additional cost, Abbas said.

Trump suggested partisan bias, wondering on Twitter why the Mueller team had “13 hardened Democrats, some big Crooked Hillary supporters, and Zero Republicans?”

Another tweet refuted the news that McCabe had written memos about his interactions with Trump. McCabe told CNN that he had three meetings and one telephone call with the president. 

"Spent very little time with Andrew McCabe, but he never took notes when he was with me," Trump tweeted, calling the memos “fake.”

Trump’s tweets came a day after it was reported that Mueller interviewed McCabe and asked him about Comey’s firing, CNN reported.

Michael Bromwich, McCabe’s attorney, said in a tweet Sunday afternoon that “the whole truth will come out in due course.”
