(upbeat music) Mr Smith Mr Smith you’re charged with going through a red light on North Main Street in Branch Avenue. Yes, it was one of those ones where you take a left turn. I had just recently adopted a puppy with my girlfriend, and we were crate training it at home. Put your hand out. Inspector Quinn, this is a new one. Yeah. We now have the adopted puppy defense. (laughing) He’s blaming the little puppy. Yeah, he’s very cute. (laughing) What did he do, the puppy told you to go through the light? The puppy, he had separation anxiety disorder so he was having a great time at home. So we could only leave him about two hours at a time, so we kept balancing our work schedules, and I got out of work at Wholefoods. I was driving home and I thought about stopping, but I remembered the puppy and I kind of just went for it. (laughing) The puppy has separation anxiety disorder? Yeah, you wouldn’t expect it to be a thing but the moment you left him as a puppy he would freak out. Who made that diagnosis? Me. (laughing) Oh, you? From the internet. (laughing) And you’re not a veterinarian are you? No, not yet, no. Oh. And I’m not training to be one, I don’t know why I said not yet. Oh, what kind of a puppy is it? He’s a Red Heeler. He’s from Arkansas. We adopted him. The dog came from Arkansas? Yeah, he rode all the way across in a car. He’s a Razorback, right? Razor… No I don’t– (laughing) That is the name of those, right? Yes, Arkansas Razorbacks. This guy is a little Texas Heeler. How old is the dog? He’s about seven months right now. Oh. So this is right when we got him. He was only about four months at the time. Beautiful, what do you feed him? Oh yeah, the science diet. It’s like this new thing. Oh yeah? Scientific research to give them the optimal nutrition for a healthy life. So you live with your girlfriend, do you? Yeah. And who is the dog more attracted to, you or your girlfriend? Definitely her. (laughing) He’s a Razorback. (laughing) He has separation.. Anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorder. (laughing) So Inspector Quinn… How do you feel Inspector Quinn about separation anxiety disorder? Your honor if he brought in any medical documentation from, you know, his diagnosis, yeah I would have looked at it but he doesn’t have any evidence. Let me take a look at it. Carol, lets take a look at it. [Frank Caprio] Which vehicle is his? The green Honda Civic. It’s making a left here and turning, coming up, right there. The one behind this white vehicle, that one there. Oh, okay. Who is driving the car? This one was me. In that green one. Okay, I’m going to charge you $35 court cost. 35, we can work with that. You can use the rest of the money to buy a treat for the dog. Oh I will, definitely. What was the dogs name? Otis. Otis? My man. I call him Odie, and Lil Roadie. And I made him an Instagram account, so that way he can become famous. (laughing) You call him Odie, and what? And Lil Roadie, like you know, Lil Roadie Lil Roadie? Yeah, so kind of like a rapper but L-I-L, Lil Roadie. The president of the University of Rhode Island, who lives on campus, he has a dog and his dogs name is Rhodey. That’s the dogs name.

Rhodey, right. (laughing) Not Lil Roadie, none of that. That dog doesn’t suffer anxiety disorders. (laughing) Nothing. That dog is very well adjusted, right. President Dooley and his wife Gwen, They hug and they caress the dog. They take care of it. They take it to Montana with them on vacation, right. You take some lessons from them. I’m going to need to work on it, yeah. Now let me ask you a question. Yes. When you leave, does your girlfriend get separation anxiety disorder? Or it doesn’t mean anything to her? (laughing) I think she misses me, I don’t know if it’s a disorder. All right, how about when she leaves, and leaves you alone at home? Oh, definitely. (laughing) It’s been about six years.
