Video: Cop chases escaped dog on freeway

A video taken from a helicopter shows the dog run into traffic as cars whiz past

By PoliceOne Staff

TEMPE, Ariz. — Officers chased down a scared dog that escaped from a car after a rollover accident, ABC 15 reported.

A video taken from a helicopter shows the dog run into traffic as cars whiz past, until Department of Public Safety Officer Martin Bennett successfully corners the pup.

"She wasn't happy when I grabbed her," Officer Bennett said, adding that despite the odd scenario, he was happy the dog was safe.

"The jokes have already started to fly," Bennett laughed. "This'll be at my retirement party years down the road."

No one was seriously hurt, according to reports. As a precautionary measure, both the dog and the female driver were taken to a local hospital.
