Scooby bites again
Lesson 1: When a cop says "Stop or I'll release the dogs" he generally means it.
Lesson 2: Dogs can run faster than Humans.
Lesson 3: Dogs have sharp teeth!
ST. PETERSBURG -- A robbery suspect was in fair condition Sunday night after being bitten in the groin and buttocks by a police dog during a brief chase. The bites from St. Petersburg police dog Scooby partially severed the penis of Raphael R. Scott on Friday, officials said. Officer Bob Roche ordered Scott, 20, to stop running and told him "if he didn't stop, he was going to release the dog," said St. Petersburg police spokesman Rick Stelljes. "Of course, the dog caught up with him." At first, Scooby bit Scott in the buttocks, but he kept fighting, so the dog kept biting, Stelljes said. Scott was taken Friday afternoon to Bayfront Medical Center. He is facing charges of strong-arm robbery, possession of cocaine and burglary. Police say Scott and two others robbed a Treasure Island store, drove a van to St. Petersburg and wrecked it at Second Avenue S and 43rd Street.
You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.
