Man Orders Dogs To Attack Frances Victims

Mental health worker charged with releasing attack dogs on hurricane victims

Police say a Florida man -- whose job is to help people -- deliberately ordered his pit bulls to attack hurricane refugees inside their office building.

Ryan Moore is a mental health counselor who treats anger management problems and addictions. He was arrested yesterday and charged with aggravated battery. Police say he released his dogs with the command "go get them" while he and the others were riding out Hurricane Frances earlier this month. One man suffered deep bites to his stomach, face, throat and hands. A woman was bitten on one leg. They called 9-1-1 -- but police couldn't respond because of the storm. This isn't Moore's first brush with the law. He's been arrested before for domestic violence, sexual assault and aggravated assault with a weapon.
