You might want to add this to your rolodex-of-lies to tell a police officer. "My dog did it."

In Sarasota, Florida police tried pulling Reliford Cooper over for speeding through a residential neighborhood. He took off. In the ensuing police chase he drove into two ditches and finally crashed into a home. Then he ran from the wrecked car and hid in a church bathroom. When finally taken into custody Reliford had some interesting things to tell the police.

"I wasn't driving that car. Who was chasing me? You're slow as ****! My dog was driving that car. I ran because I wanted to. You ain't gonna find no drugs or guns on me."

See folks, this is what happens to your life when your dog eats your homework as a kid. If you'd like to see what a guy who claims his dog was driving looks like, find his picture and more on the story here.
