Authorities say a Kentucky woman tried to sneak a urine sample from her dog into a probation drug test.
Julie Miller was caught trying to sneak a urine sample into her drug test at the Bell County probation and parole office on Monday, ABC affiliate WATE reported.
Miller was read her Miranda rights after being caught by a Pineville, Kentucky police officer, authorities said.
She then admitted to bringing a sample of dog urine into the facility.
Miller now faces charges of tampering with physical evidence.
Miller is far from the only person to fail in an attempt to fool police
In August, a Utah woman called police to report a drunk driver: herself.
According to a probable cause statement, Breanna Dawn Hernandez said she was following a drunk driver. But the description she gave a dispatcher for the alleged perpetrator matched her own. She also described her own vehicle as the one driven by the drunk driver she claimed to be tailing.
Hernandez fled when she saw the officers that arrived on the scene. Police eventually caught up to and restrained Hernandez, who smelled of alcohol, according to court documents. A nearly empty bottle of Fireball whiskey was found in the car’s cup holder, ABC4 News reported.
A Texas man downed seven Budweiser beers to steady his nerves before turning himself into police in September – only to discover that there was no warrant out for his arrest.
And in October, an Illinois man allegedly tried to fool police by giving them a fake alias even though his real name is tattooed prominently on his neck.
