CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

A 19-year-old northwest suburban woman was arrested Sunday after allegedly biting a dog during a drunken argument with her mother.

The woman was returning to her Lake in the Hills home.

Analise J. Garner, 19, of the 300 block of Village Creek Drive in Lake in the Hills, was charged with animal cruelty, two counts of domestic battery and underage drinking, Lake in the Hills police Sgt. Mark Smith said.

Officers responded to a disturbance at Garner's home about 4 a.m. Sunday after neighbors reported loud screaming and pounding, Smith said.

Garner's mother confronted her about coming home late and being drunk, Smith said.

Garner scratched and hit her 37-year-old mother in the left side of face, Smith said. She also bit her mother's right hand.

The family's white, 80-pound English bulldog was also bit three times on his back and shoulder, Smith said. The marks were visible on the body of the animal.

Garner was medically treated for a bite mark when the dog bit her once in the left arm, Smith said.

"The dog was defending himself," Smith said. "She'd already bit him a few times. The dog was not charged."

The skirmish was reported to the village's animal control department due to the dog biting Garner, Smith said.

Garner was released on $3,000 bond Monday, according to McHenry County Sheriff's office. She is scheduled to appear May 23 in court.
