Dog makes witness statement. Deserves cookie.Posted: February 19, 2013
Prosecutors got no sense of humour.
Cops in the UK are under investigation for filling in a witness statement in the name of a police dog. The Daily Mail reports that the officers got frustrated after repeated requests for a statement from PC Peach, even though they’d already explained that Peach was a dog (an alsatian, apparently).
So, they filled it out in his name. It says, “I chase him. I bite him. Bad man. He tasty. Good boy. Good boy Peach.”
It was tacked to the wall at a West Midlands Police station and, of course, made its way onto Facebook, then Twitter.
Prosecutors are apparently not amused and are complaining that they’re being made the butt of a joke.
Sources apparently say the cops behind the joke are unlikely to wind up in the doghouse over it.
SEE WHAT I DID THERE?
