(source) - Police in central Alabama say a man's own dog helped officers bust him on a drug charge. Prattville Police spokeswoman Paula Barlow says the pooch named Bo followed his fleeing master, who was being pursued by officers. When the dog stopped and wagged his tail in tall grass, she says, officers found and arrested Edwin Henderson. Barlow says the chase began when two drug officers arrived Wednesday with a search warrant and Henderson took off running.
After an investigator pointed at Henderson and told the dog "go get him," that's what Bo did. Barlow says Henderson is charged with failure to obey police, manufacturing a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. It's unclear if he has an attorney, and there's no word on who's taking care of Bo.
Look, you can't blame Bo here. He's just doing what comes naturally to dogs, which is play. That's the dog life, just looking to play and have fun and be your best friend 24/7. The real dickhead here is the investigator who took advantage of poor Bo in order to turn him snitch. I get it, his owner was a drug dealer and didn't listen to police and yada yada yada, but you can't be using a man's dog against him. That's fuckin low, dude. Here's poor Bo, confused as shit as these random people just bust in to his usually calm, drug filled home, the only thing he can wrap his head around is that his owner is running which is a natural "play time" trigger, and here comes Detective Dickhead to encourage Bo's unknowing betrayal. And what's the end result? Bo's best friend is in jail and he's without a home for the foreseeable future. So I hope you're fuckin happy, Detective Dickhead. You let a little meth (probably, it's Alabama) get in the way of a beautiful friendship and left a dog homeless. Now who's the real criminal here, ladies and gentlemen? Who indeed.
