Not THIS man's best friend

I found this story in Stars and Stripes; The Arizona Republic has it online. The headline reads:

Police dog captures suspect for 4th time

And the second paragraph read:

In the latest incident, Repp was arrested Tuesday, accused of leading police on a high-speed chase in a 1980 Corvette, crashing into a tree and fleeing on foot until he was stopped by Reno, a Longview police dog.

My first thought was "Why is this guy not in prison"? Apparently, Arizona is not a "three strikes" state.

Later in the article, we find out what he is being charged with on this escapade:

...where he was booked for investigation of felony eluding, taking a motor vehicle without permission, reckless driving, obstructing an officer, resisting arrest and third-degree driving with a suspended license.
Maybe he'll spend a bit more time than he did in his last run-in:
After the last incident, in October 2001, Repp received a five-day jail sentence and a $400 fine for reckless driving and resisting arrest.

Something tells me that the other prisoners will be dogging him for some time.
