GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Greenville Police said officers cited a man after his dog broke the chain that it was linked to and bit a child.

Police said they were called to a home on Bruce Street Friday evening where officers reported a 9-year-old was walking his puppy in front of the house and the pit bull that broke the chain and went after the child.

Police said Animal Control had previously warned the dog's owner about keeping the dog on the illegal chain, so the officer that responded to this call ticketed the owner with animal- general care and animal- rabies tag and collar required.

The ticket amounts totaled more than $1,350.
