FAYETTE COUNTY, Pa. — When his pet Chihuahua failed to scare off a state trooper, a Fayette County man said he used pepper spray on the uniformed trooper because he believed he was impersonating a police officer.
To giggles from a packed courtroom, Christopher Laurence Kelley, 48, told a judge a trooper came to his house in Georges to investigate a report that Kelley had interfered with an ambulance. But the officer left when the Chihuahua began to chew his boot, Kelley said Monday.
