Taunt a police officer, get in trouble. Taunting a police dog is apparently a no-no, as well.

Cops in a Cincinnati suburb charged 25-year-old Ryan Stephens with teasing a police pup. An officer was working a crash scene near a bar when he heard his faithful K-9 companion barking. He returned back to the car to investigate, only to find Stephens barking at the dog through the window of the cop car.

When the officer asked Stephens, who appeared intoxicated according to the police report, why he was barking at the dog, the suspect responded, "The dog started it."
