MARSHFIELD, WI (WTAQ) - A central Wisconsin woman has pleaded not guilty to resisting an officer, after her two pit bulls attacked a Wood County sheriff's deputy.

48-year-old Cora Fuller of Pittsville was arraigned Monday on her misdemeanor charge. She's due back in court November 15th.

The deputy tried stopping Fuller in late September for not wearing a seat belt, and she drove home.

According to prosecutors, the deputy convinced Fuller to come out of the house -- and he smelled alcohol and asked if she was drinking. She tried going back in when the officer allegedly grabbed her.

During the tussle, she managed to open her door and two pit bulls came out and bit the deputy. He shot both, and one was later euthanized.

In court Monday, Fuller's attorney said she would file a damage claim for what he called an unwarranted entry onto her property, and the shootings of her dogs.

Circuit Judge Todd Wolf called that a civil allegation which has nothing to do with the criminal case against Fuller.
