Police dog 'fills out' witness report

Police are under investigation in England after they provided prosecutors with a witness statement jokingly completed by a dog.

The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) had requested the statement from PC Peach, unaware the 'officer' was actually a police dog, and police in West Midlands decided to comply, the Daily Mail reports.

The statement, which was pinned to the wall of the station and also found its way onto Facebook, was signed off with a paw print and was completed in child-like handwriting.

"I chase him. I bite him. Bad man. He tasty. Good boy. Good boy Peach," it read.

The CPS was reportedly unamused by the prank and is believed to have referred the matter to the internal affairs division of the police force.

But the police union urged internal investigators to handle the light-hearted prank as just that — a joke that was made by officers constantly under stress.

"It's a difficult time for police and sometimes humour is a way of venting frustrations," union official Ian Edwards told the Mail.

"I would urge our PSD to be even-handed in the way they deal with it."

The officer who completed the form is not expected to face disciplinary action.
