Police Find Dog Behind Wheel of Car After High-Speed Chase

It's been awhile since we've been able to follow a car chase live on the air during the Tim Conway Jr. Show... But that won't stop us from doing our civic duty to make sure you find out about them!

Last Sunday night, a Washington state man led police officers on a high-speed chase through Seattle. It all ended with the suspect's vehicle crashing, but what came next was not what anyone expected...

The police officers approached the wreckage, eager to get a look at the culprit who'd been evading them. And what did they find behind the wheel?

A dog!!!

Washington State Patrol officers reported that a pit bull was sitting in the driver's seat, while it's owner -- a 51-year-old Lakewood man -- was riding shotgun, helping his pooch steer from the passenger's seat.

Officer Heather Axtman said when she asked the man what was going on, he told her that he was "trying to teach his dog how to drive."

Clearly, the man wasn't a very good teacher...

"I wish I could make this up," Officer Axtman said. "I’ve been a trooper for almost 12 years and wow, I’ve never heard this excuse."

During the chase, the vehicle reached speeds as high as 109 miles per hour while driving on sidewalks and striking parked vehicles, according to the police report.
