Good Doggie! Bad Criminal!
Mario Duane Porter, who turns 21 today, was pulled over in Gainesville, Fla., on February 9 for a traffic violation (police say his car stereo was audible from quite a distance away).
Porter quickly put the cops on alert as he "was being belligerent and vulgar, yelling profanities," Officer David Blizzard said.
A back-up officer arrived who had a police dog, and he had the dog sniff around the car to check for drugs. When Porter saw that, he allegedly commanded the dog to "Sit!" (and, weirdly, to "Sits!") The dog, confused, "stopped twice while walking the vehicle and looking in the direction of [Porter] who was giving those commands," Blizzard's report says.
Once the officers got Porter to shut up, the dog continued, and sure enough the dog alerted to drugs. A subsequent search of the car found a plastic bag with alleged marijuana residue. Porter was arrested and charged with interrupting a working police dog.
Happy birthday, dumbass.
