At the extreme left-hand end of the bell curve
A man accused of drunk-driving after leading police on a high-speed chase explained to an officer that it was his dog, and not him, who had been driving the vehicle.
Reliford Cooper, 26, blamed the pooch after his car had crashed into a ditch following the chase in Palmetto, Florida – allegedly telling an officer: “My dog was driving that car, I ran cause I wanted to. You ain’t gonna find no drugs or guns on me.”
After throwing up, Cooper, who has previous convictions for armed robbery and burglary, was taken to hospital for a check-up before being charged with drunk driving, aggravated fleeing and leaving the scene of an accident.

Che Hearn, 25, drove his car to the local Walmart in Round Lake, Illinois. He popped inside to do a bit of shoplifting of some electronics items. But police picked him up whilst he was on foot near the store.
Sadly for Hearn, whilst he was inside shoplifting, a finance company agent (who had followed him to the store) repossessed his vehicle.
