K-9 cop

February 4, 2010 - Karin Elton
I was amused yesterday when I read the following item on the AP wire:

Trooper: Deputy locked in dog cage after DUI stop BLOUNTVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A Tennessee sheriff's deputy arrested on a drunken driving charge wound up in a dog house before he was taken to the big house. The Kingsport Times-News reported the details of a Tennessee Highway Patrol arrest report, which said 47-year-old Samuel Monroe Bledsoe was kicking the windows of a trooper's cruiser on his way to a hospital for a blood test.

The report said Bledsoe was then locked inside the cruiser's K-9 cage for his safety.

Trooper David Osborne said in the report that Bledsoe performed poorly during a field sobriety test - even after it was explained to Bledsoe 18 times.

The Sullivan County Sheriff's Office later fired Bledsoe.

So they actually counted how many times they explained the test to the guy?
