PD Peach’s statement was obviously written by his handler. Nevertheless, it sums up what really happened in what appears to be in clear and concise dog language.
“I chase him. I bite him. Bad man. He tasty. Good boy. Good boy Peach.”
West Midlands Police Station can’t help but poke fun at the situation and posted a photo of the statement on their wall. Because why not?
“CPS demanded a statement from ‘PC Peach,’ who is actually PD Peach. They were told several times Peach was actually a police dog but insisted on a written statement so the case handler sent them this.”

CPS got a little butt hurt over the situation and didn’t appreciate the misunderstanding going public as a joke.
“PC Mark Tissington, of West Midlands Police, who is believed to have shared the original picture of the witness form, has referred himself to the internal discipline unit although sources suggested it was unlikely to be reprimanded,’’ the Telegraph furthers.
PD Peach and the cops in trouble are getting loads of humorous messages on support from the internet. Another K9 also expressed his support for PD Peach with the sign below.

There are a lot of seriously bad things going on in the world. This misunderstanding is funny and should be the least of our worries.
