KINGSTON, Okla. -- A call concerning a missing dog turned into a scary moment for Kingston police last month.

Officers went to the home of 29-year-old Tonya Stevenson on November 25 trying to locate the canine, but she allegedly became agitated and closed the door on police.

A few minutes later, she opened the door again and a pit bull appeared.

"As the dog exited the house, it bit our Reserve Officer Michael Pierce, then it turned and tried to bite Officer David Buchanan," Assistant Chief John Bridgeman said.

Neither officer was injured.

Stevenson was arrested on a charge of obstructing an officer and later posted bond. 

On Tuesday, she entered a not guilty pea. A preliminary hearing in the case was set for December 20.
