PENNSYLVANIA: A Pennsylvania man, stopped at a drunken-driving checkpoint, barked up the wrong tree when he couldn’t resist the urge to bark at Chaos, the police K-9. Chaos was assisting with the checkpoint when 26-year old James Paul Andrews allegedly became irritated and began barking, hissing and growling at the dog. Drunken barking at a police K-9 is a third degree felony and Andrews faces up to 7 years in prison.
What’s next for Andrews? Barking up some bail money.

FLORIDA: When Avelino Urbano Garon became sick of sniffing the foul stench of kitty litter, he demanded his wife freshen up the kitty box. His wife said it wasn’t her turn to clean up the dirty deed and refused. That sent Garon into a rage who allegedly threatened to throw the cat against the wall. Then he turned on his wife. For this, she must die. Garon picked up a knife and threatened, “Do you want me to kill you? I will kill you.”
When deputies arrived, Garon didn’t waiver and maintained his position that it was his wife’s responsibility to clean up after the stinky cat. They arrested him on the spot.

INDONESIA: A smart pooch with super human intelligence, sniffed out a baby that had been wrapped in plastic and tossed in a trash bin. What the dog did next was truly amazing. A Thai male Bangkaew breed named Pui, then carried the bag to his owner’s house and barked to get his attention.
Indonesian police said the baby weighed 4 lbs. 13 oz. and required hospitalization after being found. Doctors believe the baby was premature, probably about seven and a half months at birth.
Officials are searching for the child’s mother. In the meantime, the infant is recovering and Pui’s owner was rewarded a handsome $327 reward.
Three co-defendant poodles have been indicted on felonious dog mischief. Cody, Murphy and Maggie are charged with one count of making this mess. Each pointed the snout at the other. The cross examination was rigorous. One defendant cracked under pressure and skipped bail.
Is the bail skipping pooch guilty of making this mess? You be the 13th juror.
