Kicker – A voracious scofflaw

MYRNA BROWN, HOST: Law enforcement has released bodycam footage of an incident involving a sheriff’s deputy in Douglas County, Georgia. 

The unnamed deputy was serving papers at a rural residence and soon found herself in a struggle after a suspect jumped into her car and began eating her paperwork. 

Yup. We’re not kidding

The suspect had four legs and horns. And if you haven’t guessed by now, it was a goat.

AUDIO: He’s eating the paper. Get out! Go home! Get out! Go! Come on! Come on! Get out!

The sheriff’s office explained in a Facebook post on Friday that the deputy often leaves the door open on such calls in case she has to make a quick escape from aggressive dogs. 

But she didn’t account for a hungry goat. 

The animal clambered around, munched on some paperwork and knocked over a drink before managing to bump the deputy to the ground.

Neither the officer nor the goat was hurt. And from what we understand, the goat will not face charges for assaulting the officer.
