A woman and her 3-year-old son were bitten by a Rottweiler Thursday Oct. 13th at the home of Cincinnati Bengals football player Deltha O’Neal, according to a Clermont County, Ohio, sheriff.
The cornerback reportedly drove Jasmie Risco and her son, Jaiden, to the hospital for treatment of dog bites to the legs and buttocks.
Risco had telephoned 911 around 8:30 a.m., told a dispatcher she needed help, but the cell phone call was disconnected before officers could obtain her address, according to Sheriff A.J. “Tim” Rodenberg Jr. Officers traced the phone call and responded to O’Neal’s home.
O’Neal, who was not home at the time of the incident, was already on the way to the hospital with Risco and her son by the time officers arrived at his suburban Cincinnati home.
Police say the dog has been placed in quarantine and the incident is under investigation.
