A Guy Says His Dog Was Driving During a High-Speed Chase
This is like a really high stakes version of “the dog ate my homework.” Cops in Palmetto, Florida spotted 26-year-old Reliford Cooper the Third speeding on Wednesday night, so they tried to pull him over. But he took off and got into a high-speed chase with them. It only ended when he crashed into a house a few minutes later, so he took off on foot. He ran into a Pentecostal church to try to hide, but the people inside didn’t want any part of giving him sanctuary, and chased him right out to the cops. As they were arresting him, he said he hadn’t been driving, quote, “My dog was driving that car.” The cops didn’t buy it, and he was arrested for drunk driving, resisting arrest, and leaving the scene. There’s no word on whether he even had his dog in his car. Get more here.
