A resident of the western US state of Washington was arrested following a high-speed chase that left officers dumbfounded when they found the man’s pit bull dog behind the wheel. The incident unfolded on Sunday afternoon when police received calls about a driver hitting two vehicles in an area south of Seattle and speeding away, state trooper Heather Axtman told AFP. She said the emergency services subsequently received multiple calls about a car traveling erratically at more than 100 miles per hours (160 kilometers per hour). Ms Axtman said that, as officers gave chase, they got close to the vehicle – a 1996 Buick – and were shocked to see a pit bull in the driver’s seat and a man steering from the passenger side.
