Pit bull Dog Attack

 

 — Ventrell Jenkins, a Canadian Football League player and a former Midlands high school football standout, was being held Sunday in the Lexington County jail on charges of criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature and resisting arrest.

Jenkins’ fiancee, Deidre Hudson, was undergoing treatment for injuries received in the alleged incident but none were life-threatening, Lexington County Sheriff Jimmy Metts said. However, her face was badly beaten “to the point of her being unrecognizable,” an incident report said.

Jenkins, 27, who is 6-2 and weighs 285 pounds, and his pit bull were shot multiple times with Tasers during the incident. Eventually, three deputies needed to subdue him, Metts said. The pit bull finally ran off after biting all three deputies.

An incident report gave the following account:

A deputy arriving at Chelton Court near Irmo shortly after midnight last Wednesday saw Jenkins punching Hudson in the face, all the time saying, “I love you.”

As Hudson lay unconscious on the ground, the deputy fired his Taser at Jenkins, but Jenkins grabbed the Taser. The deputy then drew his pistol, but was immediately bitten on the right calf by a pit bull.

Another deputy arrived, and while he and the first deputy were trying to handcuff Jenkins, the pit bull then bit the second deputy.

Finally, three deputies using three handcuffs and leg restraints managed to subdue Jenkins and drive off the pit bull, which also bit the third deputy.

Jenkins was being held under $110,000 bond.

The pit bull is in the custody of the county animal control unit.

Jenkins, who graduated from Columbia High School, played defensive line for the University of Kentucky and made more than 100 tackles during his career. He played briefly for the NFL’s Cincinnati Bengals and Buffalo Bills before being dropped. He is currently a player with the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League.
