A man from Washington State in the US has been arrested after a high-speed pursuit following a hit-and-run incident.
However, officers were shocked and amazed when they finally caught the old Buick and discovered a pit bull behind the wheel.
The 51-year-old man told officers he was “teaching his dog how to drive” when the officers questioned him about the incident.
The vehicle had struck two cars before fleeing along the interstate at more than 100 miles per hour (160 kilometers per hour).
A state trooper found the funny side of the situation, saying:
“When we took him into custody… he admitted to our troopers that he was trying to teach his dog to drive. I’ve been a trooper for almost 10 years and I’ve had a lot of excuses when I’ve arrested people or pulled people over, but I’ve never had an excuse that the dog was driving,”
