It was not with a consenting dog


I was wonder why reporter Chris Ramirez was laughing his head off a while ago. After he sent me an e-mail, now I know. He said it was too good not to share, and he's right. And it's too good not to share with you.

Chris was reading one of his favorite websites, smokinggun.com., which is basically a website that is a clearinghouse for quirky, bizarre and celebrity arrests. Few things are more quirky and bizarre than an Indiana woman and her ex-boyfriend.

Michelle Owen was concerned that an ex-boyfriend had used her laptop to search for child pornography. She asked police to search the computer for illegal images, but had her plan backfire when cops discovered two videos of her engaged in illicit acts with a dog.

Owen, 24, was charged last week with two felony bestiality counts in connection with the video files, which a detective found in the laptop's "recycle bin." At the time Owen asked cops to search the computer, she was locked up in the Johnson County Jail on a public intoxication charge, which violated the terms of her release in a prior drunk driving case. According to a police affidavit, a police officer told Owen that he had found videos of her on the laptop and asked if she "knew what those files might be."

Owen, pictured in the below mug shot, replied, "The one with the dog." Cops believe that the dog in question, Toby, is a beagle. After asking if she was "going to be charged with this," Owen said that the videos "were just something she did when she was drunk and barely remembers it," adding that she tried to "delete them the next day when she was sober."

Toby was unavailable for comment.
