Officers at a UK police station were more than a little confused when prosecutors requested a witness statement from a PC Peach.
Despite his three years of faithful service, 'PC Peach' is unable to read or write - but he can deliver a mean bite when a suspect isn't following orders.
The force dog was repeatedly asked for a statement by blundering prosecutors at the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS).
Frustrated that the CPS was refusing to listen to common sense, officers at the West Midlands police station finally decided to oblige.
Filling out the form on the dog's behalf, they wrote: "I chase him. I bite him. Bad man. He tasty. Good boy. Good boy Peach."
The statement, signed with a paw print, was posted on the wall of the police station for the amusement of other officers and has found its way onto the 'cop humour' page on Facebook.
The CPS has apparently complained to police that their mistake has been turned into a public joke, although officials at West Midlands Police have said that PC Mark Tissington, who shared the picture, is unlikely to be reprimanded.
DCI Julian Harper, from West Midlands Police, told the Daily Mail: 'The Professional Standards Department is looking into this, early enquiries suggest it is a light-hearted exchange as a result of a misunderstanding around a police dog and a police officer. The matter will be investigated.'
