Police in Springfield, Colorado, USA, had to solve a “perpetual” case. This is the man who switched places with his dog to escape a drunk driving ticket.
According to Carscoops, on the night of May 13, a car overturned in Springfield. Police were shocked to discover the dog was in the driver’s seat as the man tried to get into the passenger seat. Upon closer inspection, the police realized that the dog was not a “human” driver. The dog is just trying to cover up for the drunk owner.
In fact, the police tracked the car when it was above the speed limit (84 km/h in the 48 km/h restricted area). With the police approach, the driver tried to change places with the dog in the passenger seat. He then exited the car through the passenger door, claiming he was not the driver.
The police did not believe his story, ordered a breathalyzer test. Upon hearing this, he ran away. But only about 18m was captured.
