A judge is biting back, after a woman sued over an alleged police dog bite on the butt.

Inez Starks sued the city of Warren, Mich., charging she suffered nerve damage after being bitten by a police dog about two years ago.

The Macomb Daily newspaper reports neither police nor the city attorney found any evidence Starks was actually bitten.

So, a judge put some teeth into his ruling that the suit was frivolous.

He ordered Starks to pay a $500 fine.
