Man calls police to arrest his cat for eating his bacon
As we grow up in this big, crazy, and sometimes quite scary world, we're told to call the police whenever we find ourselves in a state of emergency. Sometimes, the line between emergency and non-preferable situation gets a little blurred. This man blurred the line about as far as possible when he deemed getting one's bacon stolen by a pet cat an emergency worthy of police backup.
West Yorkshire Police released the hilarious clip (above) of the phone call between the theft victim and the police. When the man called, he told the police:
"me girlfriend has let the cat eat my bacon. I want to press charges."
The dispatcher kept her cool when she asked if the man wanted to press charges against his wife or against his cat. When the man replied that he wanted them both arrested, the dispatcher said:
"Sir, it's not an offense to let your cat eat your bacon. And we don't arrest cats."
The man shockingly attempted to protest the dispatcher's statement. He insisted that his girlfriend enabled the cat to steal his food, and thus his girlfriend should be arrested. Finally, after what people are calling an unbelievable defense, the man cut his losses and ended the call.
