In the craziest news story out of Pendleton in years, a man has been charged with assaulting an old lady at a skate park. Yeah, you read that right

A 74-year-old woman was walking past the Pendleton skate park when she ran into an "aggressive" dog. I don't know what that means. She pulled out a can of pepper spray and squirted the K-9. The dog's owner, a 23-year-old skater, charged the woman and began hitting her in the head with his skateboard. She pulled out a .38 caliber pistol and

*BAM*

pulled off a warning shot.

A grand jury said it's all the dude's fault and is charging him with an unleashed dog and assault.

So why did the lady not get charged for spraying the dog, and who made the assumption that the dog was dangerous? Maybe she just doesn't like dogs...hmmmm makes me think.
