Published on August 18, 2012
ABC 7 reports: Brittany's husband ,Jorge Cortez-Trinidad, told police he was inside the house when he heard Brittany screaming and crying outside. Cortez-Trinidad said he rushed out to see Nevarez's pit bull mix dragging Brittany by her hair on the ground as Nevarez punched her with brass knuckles, according to an arrest warrant affidavit. The dog "wouldn't let go of me, just started dragging me back and forth while everybody at my party kicked the dog to get it off," Brittany Cortez said. Cortez-Trinidad said he was struggling to pry the dog off his bride when the dog began biting her back, the affidavit said. The groom began punching the dog and it turned and began biting him. Police said a wedding guest was also bitten during the attack. The dog has been seized and is being held on a 10-day quarantine at the Denver Animal Shelter. Its fate is undecided. Brittany and Jorge are recovering at home. "It feels like the dog tried to rip my arm off," she said. The bride said she's weak, nauseated and scared that Nevarez could appear at any time. Brittany said she believes Nevarez attacked her because he's jealous of her as she moves on with her new life. "I deserve so much more on my wedding. 'I did everything for you and in return. You have a dog attack me,'" she said, as if talking to Nevarez.
