PORT ST. LUCIE, FLORIDA — A Florida dog decided to take his owner's car for a quick spin around the cul-de-sac last week in Port St. Lucie.
According to Port St. Lucie police in a statement to the New York Post, the owner apparently made a wrong turn onto the street, which prompted her to stop and get out of the vehicle to assess her situation.
She then absent mindedly closed the door with the car still running and her black labrador Max inside.
According to WPTV, that's when Max hopped into the driver's seat and popped the car into reverse.
Max then proceeded to do doughnuts slowly in reverse for about an hour or so as neighbors, and eventually police watched on.
He was doing pretty well too, not hitting anything—at first. In the end, he did love tap a mailbox and some garbage cans, but let's give him a break. It WAS his first time behind the wheel.
WPTV reports that police finally put a stop to the joyride after punching in the passcode into the driver's side door.
Police say no one was hurt in the oh-so-Florida-esque incident.
As for Max, maybe he'll spin this into a part-time job as an Uber or Lyft driver.
