Lake City woman charged after pit bull attack

By Traci Bridges, SC Now

A Lake City woman was arrested Wednesday after her pit bull attacked a woman outside of the Lake City Migrant Head Start Building.
Jeri Filyaw, 70, of 361 Gaddy St., was booked at the Florence County Detention Center on an animal control violation about 3:30 p.m., shortly after the attack, Lake City Police Chief Billy Brown said.
The dog apparently wandered away from Filyaw’s residence and ended up at the Head Start building on Carlisle Street. The dog attacked a woman there, biting her arm several times. The victim was still in surgery late Wednesday afternoon, Brown said.
The same dog has been involved in incidents in the past, and Brown said the investigation is ongoing. In the meantime, the dog will remain in the custody of city animal control officials.
