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.
