Kansas county to pay $37.5K to officer bitten by police dog


WICHITA, Kan. – A Kansas county has agreed to pay $37,500 to a Wichita police officer who was bitten by a sheriff deputy’s K-9, years after the deputy received her own settlement for being bitten by a police department dog.

The Wichita Eagle reports the K-9 bit police officer Nathan Toman in the groin, thigh and wrist during a November 2017 burglary call.

The dog’s handler successfully sued the city of Wichita for $67,000 after she was bitten by a Wichita police K-9 in 2014.
