Well, I know here in Chi-town, if a dog attacks a cop, or is used as a weapon against a cop, you will have dead doggy.

To answer your question however, in Illinois, it would be considered to be aggravated assault, a felony, if the dog was used as a weapon against someone. The owner would be arrested. Especially if the dog can possibly inflict severe injury or death upon the victim, it would be looked at like any other assault with a weapon situation.
