Since things have been hectic around here lately and Jamie decided to call me today because he was bored and wanted to tell me some funny stories, I decided I would pass along his funny anecdotes. First one isnt so funny except in the way he told it. He got his first dog bite in the almost three years he has been doing this job. He was bit by a 20 pound pitbull last week. He is fine. Just got a decent bite but will be ok. It all happened just like you see on Animal Cops. They got a call about wild dogs at a run down trailer. He gets there and they have two pitbulls on a back deck with no steps. Lovely. He works alone. All the neighbors are gathered around watching this. He grabs his pole and jumps up to try and grab one dog by hanging onto the deck and snaring the dog. He gets the dog, but the other dog bites the arm hanging onto the deck! ARGH! He pulls the one dog over the deck, swings the other dog off him back onto the deck and puts the dog into his truck. Goes back and gets the other dog. Crowd thickens...lol. Owners are no where to be found of course. Summons is stuck on the door and this case will definitely be going to court. LOL. Now this next story is really funny. Jamie is allowed to make traffic stops and to help in traffic stops but it is very rare that this occurs. Normally it only occurs if there is an animal involved. Yesterday Jamie was again...bored. He was driving around looking and waiting for a call. He spotted a cop making a traffic stop with what appeared to be an elderly man who was being very beligerent. Remember the video of the elderly grandma who was tazered? Well this was almost another of those cases. Jamie saw the cop had his tazer out and the elderly man was swinging his arms and yelling. Jamie pulled over with his lights flashing. This old man was extremely intoxicated, beligerent and downright nasty. He was cussing out both Jamie and the cop for ever MF, SOB, and other cussword you can think of. He refused to follow any instruction. He blew a .26 on the breathalizer and they found a fifth of liquor in his car and a cup with a lid and straw that smelled of whiskey. The man was 81! I have to admit...the man called Jamie a MFer and Jamie laughed at him and told him to get in the car. He said I dont have to get in the car...I wont get in the car you SOB. Jamie said...oh you will get in the car because that cop is gonna pull you in the car if you dont get in on your own. Guy said oh no he wont! Jamie said...you will see you MFer! Then Jamie told the cop to pull him in. Guy said...you cant talk to me like that, your a cop. Jamie said, no Im not a cop, Im a dog catcher and I just caught me a dog! LOL.
