Injured Abilene officer back on duty

ABILENE, Texas - Abilene Police Officer Mike Ricker is back on duty after he was injured last Friday in a motorcycle accident. 

Ricker, who was off duty at the time, was driving his department motorcycle when a dog ran out in front of him on T & P Lane.

Although Ricker slid off his bike, he and the dog only sustained minor injuries.

The dog is being held at the Abilene Animal Shelter and is up for adoption. Aaron Vannoy, Abilene Animal Services manager, said the dog only costs $60 and will come with a voucher to get him neutered, vaccinated and licensed with the city.

If you are interested in meeting the dog, you can contact the animal shelter at (325) 698-0085.
