Contact the "pooch police" first to see what they intend to do. If they are planning to "put him to sleep" for the violent action, you need to make a case for leniency by showing that this is his first offense and something must have triggered the reaction. You must also be prepared to show how you can prevent this from ever happening again such as always having him on a leash, or inside a fence, etc.
