A Department of Public Safety officer chases a terrier on a Valley freeway in a video going somewhat viral today.

A video of Arizona Department of Public Safety officers chasing a Yorkshire terrier on a Phoenix freeway is making the rounds on the Internet, and seems to be quite popular with the British.

"Who let the dog out! Terrier on the run leads police on frantic OJ Simpson-style highway chase," screams the Daily Mail.

"Pesky pooch in motorway mayhem," says the Sun.

It's a darned cute video, (see it below), with a couple of heart-stopping moments as the short-legged pup runs into traffic and seems seconds away from being splattered.
 

ABC-15 (KNXV-TV) had its chopper in the air on Wednesday and shot the video of the canine, which had run away from the scene of a collision.

From the accompanying story by 15's Brian Webb:



DPS Officer Martin Bennett captured the pooch. "Our main concern is for the dog's safety and for the safety of others on the highway," said Bennett, who is 6 feet 10 inches tall.

"The jokes are already rolling in," he said. "I'm sure this will be mentioned at my retirement party years from now. I was just happy to get the dog and get him to safety."

He thinks the dog was a Yorkie. It reportedly tried to bite him when he picked it up.


You can also see the video in a YouTube video someone put up:

Where is AARPaio in this?  Running the poor little dog nearly to exhaustion.  The owner should be locked up right after a perp walk.  This is serious animal neglect and needs a full blown press conference.

I can honestly say I hope that officer never gets hurt in the line of duty...god bless him.

Way to go out on a limb, numb nuts.We shouldn't want any harm to come to any of our public safety people. While not perfect, they still hang their ass out on the line every day.

no they don't. Half the time you drive on an AZ freeway you are lucky to survive the trip.

They choose to ride those motorcycles. They think it makes them look tougher.I stand by my original statement:

That is ONE officer I can honestly say I hope doesn't get hurt in the line of duty.

who are you calling boy.. after all you are the one calling me a faggot.

I could care less. Maybe they will all get run over by the speeding trucks with tea party bumper stickers on them while they pull over a white van with a Hispanic driver.Better yet would be one of the semi drivers they constantly pull over going ballistic and slamming into one of those DPS trucks I see all the time.

Reality is that SWIFT TRUCKS and huge pickups with tea party bumper stickers are more dangerous than anything else on AZ highways.(edit) I wonder if SickBoy is one of those guys that was one of Joel Fox's favorites... or in other words one of his butt buddies?

Yes they do you faggot. They ride those motorcycles which increases their risk of death on a freeway full of speeding vehicles. So technically, they are risking their life simply by riding on the freeway on their hogs, boy.

Thumbs Up for that officer who nabbed the nearly "splattered" critter. That was a good show btw.

If this would have been the MCSO, Pieholio would have called a press conference to say that this "Undocumented Alien" would be deported back to Yorkshire,

I beg to differ. I think he'll keep it in his M.A.S.H. unit for "9 years"(same as "Queenie") before giving it up for adoption. Then hold another art contest in his jails honor of that Yorkie.
