The Crown Prosecution Service in West Midlands, England demanded a statement from a witness named PC Peach about an arrest. Officers on the case tried to explain that PC Peach was a police dog, but the demand for a statement stood. So the dog's handler made out a statement for the dog as best as he could.
The statement read: “I chase him. I bite him. Bad man. He tasty. Good boy. Good boy Peach.” It stated that the age of the witness was “four” and that his number was PD4341. The document was pinned to the wall at West Midlands Police Station, much to the amusement of colleagues. One officer took a photograph of the statement and it soon appeared on Facebook and on several police Twitter accounts.
The CPS, however, failed to see the funny side and complained to the police that their mistake had been turned into a very public joke. PC Mark Tissington, of West Midlands Police, who is believed to have shared the original picture of the witness form, has referred himself to the internal discipline unit although sources suggested he was unlikely to be reprimanded.
