The Dog Wrote The Check
When a woman was accused by her ex-husband of taking money from his bank account she told police it was her dog's fault.
ARLINGTON, Wash. - A woman accused of dipping into her ex-husband's bank account without permission blames her dog. Arlington, Wash., police spokeswoman Kristin Banfield said detectives filed court orders to follow the money trail. They learned the money disappearing from the 42-year-old Arlington man's account was being used to pay for utility bills and other items at his ex-wife's home.
Banfield told The Herald that the woman's first response was, "Her dog got into her purse and ate all her personal checks." The 50-year-old woman reportedly told police she had no choice but to take money from her former husband's account.
I guess her explanation probably would have gone a lot further if the checks hadn't been signed and cashed. Well, you've got to give her an E for effort.
