NORTH SALT LAKE CITY UTAH Dec. 29, 2007 – Police say a driver tossed a dog from his sunroof during a high-speed chase. The 18-year-old driver got away, but authorities tracked him down using the dog’s rabies vaccination tag. Dallas Dee Bruehl is in Davis County jail on charges of evading police and animal cruelty but insists the dog jumped out of a window after he hit a bump in the road. Sheriff’s Deputy Matt Boucher said he witnessed Bruehl throw the dog from the sunroof and that he had to swerve to avoid hitting the pooch. The dog limped off a road with “road rash all over its body” and a broken pelvis. Bruehl was arrested Wednesday. His dog, a boxer-lab mix named Dozer, wasn’t found by animal control officers until a day after Saturday’s chase.
The chase had began for some minor traffic infractures but Bruehl refused to stop for deputies and initated a pursuit.
