On the loose with a pooch!

Man in car chase with dog under his arm

This is definitely one for World’s Wildest Police Videos, or should that be World’s Weirdest? All the best car chases end up with a sprint finish, and this was one is no different, as an Australian criminal continued his escape on foot after ditching his car on the Queensland highway. The odd part to this story though, is that all the while he had a dog under his arm!

Watch the crazy video below as the man then attempts to steal another vehicle by flagging it down on the motorway, still with the canine in tow.

After then trying his luck with a bit of breaking and entering, the man and his dog were finally apprehended and taken to a local hospital where he was treated for minor injuries. It’s not clear what happened to his furry friend, but the 24 year old was charged with three counts of attempted robbery, dangerous operation of a vehicle, failing to stop a motor vehicle, failing to comply with duties of a driver involved in a crash, entering a dwelling with intent and stealing and receiving tainted property.

Not bad for a bit of walkies…
