When police tried to pull over 26-year-old convicted felon Reliford Cooper for drunk driving, it devolved into a high-speed chase. After he crashed his car into an occupied home, he ran away before being apprehended in a Church bathroom.

Cooper’s defense? His dog was driving the car.

“Who was chasing me?” Cooper asked authorities after they captured him. “You slow as f—! My dog was driving that car; I ran cause I wanted to. You ain’t gonna find no drugs or guns on me.”

Only in Florida.
