SIOUX CITY | The city of Sioux City has reached a $6,500 settlement in a lawsuit filed by a woman who was attacked by a police dog.

Keisha Davis filed suit in Woodbury County District Court in December 2011 against the city, then-police chief Joe Frisbie, current Chief Doug Young and officer Lori Noltze.

In the suit, she said that on Dec. 12, 2009, she was at her home when her then-husband, Kevin Davis, pulled his vehicle into the driveway of their home. Four police officers also arrived to arrest him. When Noltze released her police dog, it attacked Keisha Davis.

Keisha Davis sued for damages that included injuries suffered in the dog attack.

The Sioux City Council approved the settlement on March 25. City Attorney Nicole Jensen-Harris did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment.

Davis' attorney, Pat Phipps, of Moville, Iowa, declined to comment on the case.
