Colorado DUI dog

A Colorado man tried to convince cops that his dog was behind the wheel to avoid a ticket after being pulled over in suspicion of DUI, police said on Sunday.

The driver was pulled over for speeding Saturday night before he “attempted to switch places with his dog who was in the passenger seat, as the SPD officer approached and watched the entire process,” The Springfield Police Department said in a Facebook post.

Police said “The male party then exited the passenger side of the vehicle and claimed he was not driving.”

“The male party showed clear signs of intoxication and when asked about his alcohol consumption the male party ran from the Officer,” the post continues.

The suspect was apprehended and arrested on suspicion of charges, including driving under the influence, as well as for existing warrants for his arrest.

The man was also found to have two active warrants for his arrest out of Pueblo. And as for the dog? The unidentified pooch was handed over to an acquaintance of the driver while he was in jail, cops said.

“The dog does not face any charges and was let go with just a warning,” SPD said in their post.
