News outlets reported that residents in Port St Lucie called police on Thursday after seeing the dog trapped and clambering around in the car as it spun repeatedly round, effectively performing circular “doughnuts”, a move favoured by victorious motor sports drivers.
Police said they thought the dog’s owner had stepped away from the running car and the pet then knocked it into reverse. One neighbor, Anne Sabol, said she watched as the car took out a mailbox and a trash can.
Police stopped the joyride by punching a passcode into the driver’s door. No one was hurt.Sabol said the dog was in high spirits after it was rescued, saying it “jumped out of the car, wagging his tail”.
