FAYETTEVILLE, AR - The Arkansas State Claims Commission has awarded almost $40,000 to a woman for injuries she said she suffered when she was bitten by a state police dog.

The panel agreed to the settlement for Beff Kay Ray of Fayetteville.

According to Ray, she was attacked by her neighbor's dog on more than one occasion, including an April 5, 2004, bite to one of her arms.  Her neighbor, state police Trooper Jeff Harris, is the dog's handler.

Ray said in her claims she suffered serious and permanent injuries, including nerve damage to her arm.  She originally asked for $100,000 compensation for her pain and suffering, medical expenses, emotional distress, permanent scarring and disfigurement, and loss of earning capacity.
