The Frisco Police Department and Frisco Animal Services Officers investigated a dog bite involving the free-roaming dog owned by Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott.

Officers received a call when a nearby told them she had observed a loose dog in their front yard fighting with their dog through a fence.

When the resident left the home observing two loose dogs. When the resident attempted to intervene, she was bitten by one of the loose dogs, causing non-life-threatening injuries.  It led to the resident being transported to a local hospital by paramedics from the Frisco Fire Department.

Upon their arrival to the scene, officers were able to locate and capture both loose dogs.

During their investigation, officers discovered the dogs were owned by Prescott, who was not home at the time of the incident.

Officers determined the dogs were able to escape Prescott’s residence through an unsecured door.

The Dallas Morning News reports the dog that bit the woman , an American Staffordshire terrier, was taken by animal services to the Collin County Animal Shelter. It is scheduled to be quarantined for 10 days.

The other dog was released to Prescott’s home.

Two dogs owned by Prescott, a pit bull named legend and a French bulldog named The GOAT,  appeared with him in a Greek yogurt commercial last year.

No charges have been filed, yet. The News reports the person responsible for the dogs could be charged with a misdemeanor count of having a dog at large, a Class C misdemeanor which is punishable by a fine of up to $500.

Prescott is one of the more underpaid players in the NFL, making $630,000 last season .

But still, he should be easily able to pay for the misbehavior of his animals.
