We know it's tempting, but please, don't bark at police dogs. It's not nearly as funny as you think it is and you will get arrested.
Ryan James Stephens, a 25-year-old Ohio man, was arrested and charged with a misdemeanor for barking at a police dog in a K9 unit patrol car.
The officer in charge of the dog was investigating a traffic incident at a nearby bar when he heard his canine partner barking uncontrollably.
When he approached, he saw an intoxicated man barking and hissing at the crime fighting dog.
After being asked why he was harassing the animal, the man said, "The dog started it."
That's hilarious if you're Zach Galifianakis in a comedy movie, but really stupid if you're some drunk guy on the street.
