(Newser) – Another life lesson from the police blotter: A 26-year-old man who got stopped at a sobriety checkpoint in Pennsylvania thought it would be a good idea to start barking and growling at a police dog named Chaos, reports TribLive. Chaos started barking back, though his handler managed to keep him under control. That was the good news for James Paul Andrews. The bad news is that taunting a police animal is a felony punishable by up to seven years in prison, reports the Cranberry Eagle. Andrews now faces that charge along with others for DUI and driving without a license.
