Police in Ohio responded to a 5:30am call where a man claimed a pig was following him home from the train.
The North Ridgeville police department was convinced the man was very drunk or hallucinating, but upon responding to the call found out the guy wasn’t full of shit, and was actually “very sober.”
The police department explained the full story in a funny Facebook post:
At 5:26 this morning we received a call from a male who stated that he was walking home on Center Ridge from the Train Station in Elyria. He went on to state that he was being followed by a pig and didn’t know what to do. A pig. Riiiight.
Night shift responded to the obviously drunk guy walking home from the bar at 5:26 in the morning. He was at least drunk enough to call the police on himself while hallucinating.
Upon arrival, they found a very sober male walking eastbound on Center Ridge near Maddock Rd. from the actual Amtrak train station in Elyria, not the bar. Oh, and he was being followed by a pig.
Yes, a pig.
Ptlm. Kuduzovic managed to wrangle (I think this is the correct word to use) said pig into his cruiser and he is currently secured in our pig pens…..er, dog kennels. Whatever.
You’d have thought we would have learned our lesson after the kangaroo incident.
Is this real life?
Also, we will mention the irony of the pig in a police car now so that anyone that thinks they’re funny is actually unoriginal and trying too hard.
Have a great day.
UPDATE 8:23am: THE PIG HAS BEEN RETURNED TO ITS OWNER.
