DETROIT (WXYZ) - Detroit police were led on a mile-long chase. Their "suspect?" A sheep.
Investigators say the animal somehow got loose and took off down Van Dyke near Outer Drive. As officers tried to capture it, the animal darted into a nearby business.
Employees of Nortown Collision were stunned to see the sheep run into the service garage. "We were like, 'What the heck?!'' said Al Oleszko, the shop's owner.
Oleszko helped capture the sheep. It was taken into custody by animal control. We are told the sheep was properly tagged and had it's shots. It will likely be returned to its owner once police figure out who that is.
