Warren — A Warren woman failed to appear in court Thursday, Oct. 3, for a hearing on how she would pay a money judgment against her after her dog bit a Knox County sheriff's deputy.

The Knox County Court had earlier ruled that Chasity Keizer must pay the Maine Municipal Association $4,047 to reimburse the agency for medical bills it paid for the injured officer.

Deputy Alicia Averill responded May 18, 2018, to a motor vehicle crash in the dooryard of Keizer's residence. Keizer's dog, a large German shepherd, bit the deputy on a forearm. The deputy suffered six puncture wounds and contusions, according to paperwork filed in court by the MMA in March.

A financial disclosure hearing was scheduled Oct. 3 in the court, but the Warren woman did not appear.

The MMA can filed for a civil order of arrest if an agreement is not reached with Keizer.
