Chillicothe Missouri Police Department

Chillicothe police say they received a report on Saturday afternoon of a person on a four-wheeler pulling two small children on sleds on Trenton Road.

Police were unable to locate the group, however, Chillicothe Assistant Police Chief Rick Sampsel reminded the public it’s not only unsafe to perform an activity like this, but it’s also illegal.

On Sunday afternoon, Chillicothe police were dispatched to the area of Polk and Dickinson in reference to a male on a 4-wheeler pulling kids on a sled while in the street. The Officers advised the male that pulling sleds with a motor vehicle was not safe and was not allowed on city streets at Chillicothe.

On another topic, Sampsel reported an officer responded early Saturday morning to Hedrick Medical Center for a reported dog bite. Sampsel reports a resident apparently surprised their pet from being asleep and the animal bit the owner on the face. The individual required several stitches to close the bite wound.

A report is to be forwarded to the Livingston County Health Center.
