From the title of this article, you would think that the entire swat team needed to be called in due to the complications created "by" a pit bull.
The story is about two irate teenagers, one who ran from the police, the other - his girlfriend - who got so mad she dragged the poor family dog into the debacle. In a brilliant attempt at The Stupid, the girlfriend tried to get the dog (a pit bull) to attack officers. The dog just sat there, probably like a total dork.
So, here we have a story about a couple of kids being dumb, running from the police, and a dog who just sits there and does nothing. Yet the title of the article? "Newark arrests complicated by pit bull". Well, no. The arrests were complicated by two dumb kids. The end.
