On Gawker, Taylor Berman reports that Reliford Cooper told the police that at the time of the accident his dog was behind the wheel. Not him.
This happened in Manatte County, Florida. The cartoonish saga started when the police attempted to stop Cooper for passing through a red light. While trying to escape, he drove his car into a house. In the arrest he was charged with an alleged DUI.
Animal lovers around the world will go to the mat about the dog's innocence.
