The guard was not injured, because a wallet in his pocket protecting him from the bite last week, according to a Palm Beach Gardens police incident report.

The incident occurred Friday night when the 5-year-old tan pit bull, Bambi, and a white Maltese were roaming around a guardhouse near Williams' home, the report said.

Williams told police she was watching the dog for a friend, the report said.

The dog is registered to Williams, Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control assistant director Dennis Yeskey told The Palm Beach Post. Animal control did not have records of Williams owning a Maltese

Williams' Web site shows two photographs of a tan pit bull named Bambi. A spokeswoman for Williams declined to comment.

Telephone calls placed to Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control were not immediately returned Monday. A police spokeswoman would not comment on the case.

Re: Serena Williams Dog Bites Guard in Fla.

Serena Williams denies owning dog that bit guard
By Nicole Janok

Palm Beach Post Staff Writer

Tuesday, December 05, 2006

Tennis star Serena Williams claimed she does not own the pit bull that bit a security guard Friday inside the exclusive BallenIsles community in Palm Beach Gardens.

Williams told police she was watching Bambi, a 5-year-old tan pit bull, for her friend Davide Tomassoni, 30, of Jupiter, according to a Palm Beach Gardens police report released Monday.

But officials at Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control, which requires all residents to register their pets, said Williams is the registered owner of the pit bull and a Jack Russell terrier named Jackie.

Williams' personal Web site also says she owns those dogs.

There is no record of Tomassoni owning an animal in Palm Beach County.

Bambi was returned to Williams' 8,870-square-foot home after he nipped at the guard's backside Friday night.

The guard found the pit bull and a white Maltese named Loreli roaming around the guardhouse near the Northlake Boulevard entrance, the report said.

When the guard approached the small white dog, the pit bull became defensive and drew closer to the guard, Palm Beach Gardens police Maj. Robert Artola said.

The pit bull appeared to be protecting the Maltese, Artola said.

The guard's wallet protected him as the pit bull jumped to bite his rear. Bambi's bite was not reported to animal control, as most animal bites are, because the guard was not injured.

The guard traced the dogs back to Williams' estate from a phone number on the Maltese's tags.

The pit bull did not have a collar or tags.

A guest of the Williams family came to the guardhouse and took the dogs back to Williams' home at 313 Grand Key Terrace, the report said.

Serena Williams later told police that she let the dogs out and they got loose. She said she owns the Maltese, according to the report.

Animal control did not have records of Williams owing a Maltese.

Venus and Serena Williams returned to the Palm Beach County Courthouse on Monday.

They spent several days last week testifying in a multimillion-dollar breach-of-contract lawsuit filed against the Williams family over a failed battle-of-the-sexes tennis tournament.

The sisters' attorney, F. Malcolm Cunningham Jr., declined to comment Monday while attending the trial.

Well that's just a love bite.
That pit bull gives Serena love bites on her ass all the time.
She doesn't even feel them. It's just a little nip.

This is such a non issue. The guard didn't even care enough to report it. If the dog was associated to a non celebrity this story wouldn't even be heard.
