Dude Crashes Car After Leading Police On A High Speed Chase, Claims His Dog Was Driving - Daily Mail


SARASOTA, Fla. A man in Florida, who led deputies on a high-speed chase, claimed that his dog had been driving the car, according to WFTS. The high-speed chase began when a deputy spotted a white four-door vehicle speeding through a neighborhood. The deputy attempted to pull the vehicle over, but the driver sped up while attempting a turn and traveled into a ditch. There, the driver, Reliford Cooper III, 26, overcorrected, swerved, went through another ditch and crashed into a home. Cooper then ran from the vehicle and hid inside the bathroom of a nearby church. While he was being handcuffed, Cooper said, “I wasn’t driving that car.” “My dog was driving that car. I ran because I wanted to. You ain’t gonna find no drugs or guns on me.” Deputies reporting smelling a strong odor of alcohol and marijuana on Cooper. He was charged with DWI. Cooper was taken to the hospital after he began throwing up and was later placed in jail.

Reliford Cooper the Third, I tip my cap to you. Sometimes you’re stuck behind the 8 ball. Sometimes you’re down to the last gun in the bullet and you’ve only got one play left. Time to throw up the Hail Mary. Time to throw out any excuse. The first thing that comes to your brain. This is the shitfaced drunk version of the Dog Ate My Homework. “The Dog Was Driving” is a legendary snake it til you make Mailtime excuse. No way you cant respect this guy for trying.

Also love the move of throwing up all over the place and going to the hospital first. At least you get a bed for a little while. Some fluids. Stay comfortable. Sober up a bit before heading to the slammer. Thats an old DUI trick. Puke and they have to send you to the hospital. Its like Police Rules or something.
