Think Chihuahuas are cute and cuddly? Think again.
Some members of the Police Service of Norther Ireland learned the hard way that a Chihuahua they encountered is not a doggo to be messed with.
The official Facebook page of PSNI Craigavon posted a "mug shot" of the dog that they named Nigel because "he looks like a Nigel" along with the list of offences that he was being held up for - "jay walking, disorderly behaviour and 2 counts of assault on police."
Yeah, it's fair to say "Nigel" is a real bad egg. Here's the encounter in full as told by "M" of PSNI Craigavon.
"This is Nigel the chihuahua. Nigel was named by Wee N, who thinks that "he looks like a Nigel." We stopped with him at around 330am on Ashleigh Crescent whilst on patrol of the Avenue Road area of Lurgan.
Nigel didn't want to play ball.
He was subsequently arrested for jay walking, disorderly behaviour and 2 counts of assault on police. He's got serious anger issues, and bit myself AND Big T. Wee N found this hilarious.
Normally I'd make a joke about keeping him as a new PD if no one claims him. Not Nigel. He's an angry wee man and is seriously anti police!
He wasn't wearing a collar and seemed to be coming from the Avenue Road towards Orient Circle or Carrick Drive.
Please...find his owner. I like my fingers and don't fancy their chances if he's here another night. He's currently sleeping on my jacket, which I have a feeling he's not going to let me have back.
Share this or tag any chihuahua owners you know. The incident number is 173 of 19/04/17. The owner will need to call up the station to get him...soon...please...
By the way, in this photo he's in the drivers seat. MY seat. He chased me out of my own police car!! Angry wee so and so. Of course, the main thing is that Nigel is safe. The roads are no place for a wee lad like him to be wandering at 330am.
Luckily for M, Nigel's owners came forward to claim him.
Simba? Nah he's definitely a Nigel. Here's hoping he keeps on the straight and narrow going forward.
