Bishopville police officer attacked by dog


A Bishopville police officer is recovering from serious injuries after he was attacked by a dog while on patrol.


Authorities say Josh Kelly was checking on reports of a drug deal around 11 p.m. Tuesday when he was bitten.


Bishopville Police Chief Sonny Ledda says his officer was able to drive himself about 15 miles to a Hartsville hospital despite suffering from traumatic groin injuries.


Ledda says Kelly was then taken by helicopter to a Columbia hospital and is expected to recover.


Authorities are still looking for the dog that attacked the officer.
