A Pittsburgh man was drunk when he crashed his SUV into a pole, and his passenger, who was also drunk, got him into even deeper trouble — because he’s a chihuahua.
44 year old Thomas Bloedel was arrested for DUI and slapped with an additional charge of animal cruelty because his dog Maxwell was also as drunk as a skunk. Police say the little pooch drank some vodka that had spilled in Bloedel’s lap. Officers noticed the dog’s eyes were dilated and he stumbled when he walked. He was taken to an animal hospital, where was treated overnight.
Before being hauled off to jail, Bloedel wound up adding a charge of making terroristic threats for saying he was going to kill the officers.
