It has never been scientifically proven, but take it from my wife, people aren’t as funny as they think they are.

This is especially true of drunk people, and, super especially, drunk people messing with cops.

This once again became obvious at a DUI roadblock in western Pennsylvania where a man was arrested for DUI and “inciting chaos” after barking at a police dog named “Chaos.”

It’s never a good idea to hassle cops, even furry ones.

Inciting chaos is a real criminal charge and is punishable by up to seven years in prison.

See? That’s not funny at all.

Here’s some more Monday news that isn’t funny:

So its against the law to talk to a police officer when you are drunk? The guy was just speaking “dog” so that officer would understand. Stupid law! The dog should be trained better than to get riled up when “a person” barks.

A University of Florida football player did this several months ago and got his charges dropped.

What happened to “Freedom of Bark”? Did the Dog ( Sheriff) ask the first bark and the individual just respond? who names their dog Choas? Drug dealers, Dog fighters,the police?

Cops in this country seem to have a general hard-on for arresting and brutalizing people. Yeah, that beast right there sure looks intimidated.

Welcome to the police state.

Glad to see that DOGS are no longer used against just one segment of The Population. They also BITE unsuspecting White Females as they walk through Airports! OUCH!

Prediction: Prosecutor will drop the charges. DUI will be enough.

Without the DUI charge, the guy could file a civil lawsuit against the police officer for unlawful arrest.

“•New NSA employee spied on ex-girlfriend on first day at job”

Aren’t these the guys that we’re told to trust to keep us “safe”. What a farce.
