Dog Owner Now Facing Assault Charges

Linda Green, 48-year-old Chester resident, is charged with first and second degree assault and reckless endangerment. When two animal control officers responded to a call for a dog running free, Green went inside her home and returned with a samurai sword, threatening one of the officers. Deputies were called for backup, and Green reportedly told the animal cops she was going back inside for a shotgun. Green was eventually arrested without incident and admitted owning and brandishing the sword.
