I think his name "scarface" tells it all

Maybe have been an adopted dog, a former "pit" dog used for fighting.

Unless the dog didn't pass through legal channels, these dogs tend to be put down. It also doesn't go well for a dog that's been calm all of its life but suddenly attacks a human. They get put down as well. There are many ways pets are abused (other than physically) that can cause their survival instincts to suddenly kick in. I can imagine that the sweater was seen as some sort of restraining device that it wanted no part of.

Adopted

"The owner had adopted the pit bull mix about 30 days prior."

My daughter has a pit bull female dog. Not a problem, but she's raised it since a puppy. Friendly with my dog, which died last year. Never attacked the cats, although they attacked her a couple times. This violent pitbull dog however ad been adopted, named "scarface" maybe for reason, and seemingly hadn't yet fully accepted his new position in their home, accepted them fully as his new "pack", nor recovered fully from however he may have been used or abused in the past.
