This Could Be The Oddest Story of the Year

Police officer McGruff the crime dog, originally uploaded by Miss-D200.

A number of readers sent me links to this yesterday. The Post reports:

D.C. police said a Metro bus driver was charged with assault Saturday after a bizarre incident in which he allegedly punched a patrol officer who was dressed as McGruff the Crime Dog, the popular mascot who educates children about crime prevention.

The driver, Shawn Brim, 39, got out of the bus he was driving at Spring Road and 14th Street NW early Saturday afternoon and punched Officer Tyrone Hardy in the head, police said.

Clearly this oddest story of the year, right?
