The story, that a K-9 named Arlo was shot in the line of duty in Thurston County, Washington, made waves in local news for weeks " and even garnered national attention. It had all the elements of what cable networks like to portray as feel-good news: Police had apprehended a suspect in a high-speed chase, he pointed a gun at them, and their dog had been injured in the altercation. But not to worry, thanks to efforts from the community and law enforcement, K-9 Arlo was on his way to a speedy recovery. The only problem? The gun wielded by the suspect that some had suggested shot Arlo didn't contain any bullets. No shell casings from his weapon were found at the scene. The only bullets that were fired came from the police.
