PC Peach gives statement – only problem is, it’s a dog
West Midlands Police could be in the doghouse after someone from the force filled out a form in the guise of one of their police dogs, Peach.
The faux statement was brief and said: ‘I chase him. I bite him. Bad man. He tasty. Good boy. Good boy Peach.’
It also came complete with a ‘signature’ from the Alsatian, which was a print of its paw.
It was reportedly written in response to a barrage of requests from the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) for an account from PC Peach on a matter, the Daily Mail reports.
Officers are said to have become frustrated after they continually told the law service Peach was a dog but were not listened to.
But it seems the joke report may have consequences as the force is now being looked at.
‘The matter will be investigated,’ DCI Julian Harper, from West Midlands Police, told Huffington Post UK.
‘The Professional Standards Department are looking into this, early enquiries suggest it is a light-hearted exchange as a result of a misunderstanding around a police dog and a police officer.’
