This dog had a real opportunity to “take a bite out of crime.”

A New Jersey German Shepherd has received a summons to report for jury duty. According to the dog’s owner, Barrett Griner IV, he received a jury summons addressed to “IV Griner,” which is the name of his 5-year-old dog.

According to an Apr. 16, 2014, Reuters story, a local court official said the letter was likely the result of a computer mishap. “It probably picked up that IV, which is usually after his name, from one of the databases and put it into his first name slot in the jury system,” the official said.
