Edwin Fry loves his prize pooch. When his dog, Buddy Tough, found himself locked up in the town kennel, Fry decided that there was only one option. He would bust him out of jail.
Fry could have paid the $100 fine to have his dog released, but instead, he decided to visit the pound with a pair of bolt cutters. It would have been the perfect crime, but Fry forget to use a get-away vehicle capable of hitting 10 mph.
Fry busted his dog out of the town kennel, then fled on his ride-a-long lawnmower.
Hydro, Oklahoma police officer Chris Chancellor said:
“I’ve been in law enforcement 20 years, and this is the first time I’ve known of anyone that has busted a dog out of jail.”
According to the Associated Press, Fry spent several days in jail as he was charged for allowing an animal to run at-large. Fry didn’t deny the charge, but told police that they should leave his dog alone unless they wanted to face his shotgun.
Sadly, the dog was euthanized when Fry was in prison.
