One of our Twitter friends alerted us to this early Sunday morning. Apparently, “A man suspected of drunken driving ran into a lagoon, refused to surrender and tried to drown a police dog before he was arrested, police said yesterday.” according to a story in the San Diego Union–Tribune.
Lavar Toosweet McKiernan, 34, was arrested on suspicion of felony driving under the influence, felony evading causing injuries, and attempting to harm a police dog, said Carlsbad police Lt. Marc Reno.. . . The motorist drove away with Alexander in pursuit, Reno said. He rear-ended a vehicle and hit a telephone pole before leaving the car and running into the Buena Vista Lagoon, about half a mile from where the chase began.
Alcohol is such a wonderful thing, huh?
