Law enforcement report

¢ Police cited a 20-year-old man for cruelty to animals and having a fake ID after responding to a call Monday afternoon that a dog had been left in a vehicle in 98-degree heat in the parking lot of Dillons, 1740 Mass.

A witness at the scene told police the man's Australian shepherd had been in the vehicle for about 10 minutes prior to the officer's arrival, according to a report. When police contacted the man, he said he'd been gone no longer than five minutes. As the man was giving police his identification, the officer saw he had a homemade driver's license from another state that said he was 21.

I wonder if any of these peoples parents ever told them not to play with matches.

I wish that the fire dept. did not have to respond to these idiots, in case a real fire was to happen and they were on the other side of town responding to some dork with a book of matches.
