New 'DWTS' Competitor Accused of Canine Attack

8/12/2009 12:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ashley HamiltonRemember that dude who married Shannen Doherty back in 1993? Yeah, we didn't either until actor Ashley Hamilton's dog allegedly mauled somebody in Los Angeles.

A guy named Michael Cohen is suing the upcoming "Dancing with the Stars" contestant for acting "negligently, carelessly and recklessly" when Hamilton's American Staffordshire Terrier (similar to a "Pit Bull") allegedly bit Cohen's dog "Sabra" in L.A.'s Runyon Canyon a few months ago.

Cohen says he cradled his wounded pooch in his arms when Hamilton's dog -- who was allegedly "roaming freely" at the time -- bit Cohen on his hand and wrist.

According to the docs, Cohen tried to make a run for it, but tripped over a rock in the process, injuring himself further ... not that we find that kinda/sorta funny or anything.

Cradling a dog in the park? Sounds like an obnoxious little dog and their wierdo owner.

American Staffordshire Terrier's ARE pit bulls....AmStaff is the breed recognized by the AKC. "Pitbull" is a 'street name' that comes from the fact that they are fought in pits, and tough as bulls. Once again, TMZ always has their sh** together.

DDD, you are incorrect. AmStaffs are similar to pitbulls but there is a breed called AMERICAN PIT BULL TERRIER which is the actual Pit Bull.

You can get your picture taken with Shannon for $50 and her autograph for $25.
I think she would prefer her clothes on for the pic.
Good times.
