Paw & Order: Cop "Arrests" His Own Dog After Christmas Elf Is Decapitated

WFLA

In the holiday justice system, dogs are represented by two separate yet equally important groups: The police, who investigate the naughty, and the district attorneys, who put them on time-outs. These are their stories...

When the undersheriff of New Mexico's San Juan Country heard about the horrific tragedy that involved a beloved member of the Christmas elf community, he had no idea that the culprit would be right under his own nose.

In a hilarious video released by Shane Ferrari, said undersheriff, he documents the discovery of the "grisly crime scene" that was his house, after his 2-year-old Boston Terrier, Josie, sunk its tiny teeth into one of his holiday elves.

"I've been a cop for 20 years, and I've seen a lot of ugly, gruesome scenes, but this was probably the worst," he outlines in the video.

The pictures show a horrifying mess of stuffing and strewn body parts. And the investigation was not easy for this officer of the "paw!"

Ferrari didn't want to believe his lovable pup would do something so heinous. However, his interrogation left him with no doubts.

"As I looked into Josie's eyes, I saw nothing but guilt," he said. "It was sad."

He booked Josie for the crime and placed her into cuddle-custody. She is currently being held under house-arrest with no chance at parole, except for mandatory daily walks with a maximum security leash.

Several members of the holiday elf family have begun staging "protests," holding signs of "Boston Terror" and "Elf Lives Matter."

It seems like it will be a "ruff" Christmas time at the Ferrari household this year.

Share if you believe Josie deserves a fair trial and a belly rub!
