A North Lauderdale man could face jail time for tying a dead dog to the bumper of a truck belonging to a deaf co-worker, who unknowingly dragged the animal for two miles.

Paul Michael Goobie, 47, told another co-worker he found the dead Chihuahua in the street and brought it back to work, where he tied one end of a rope to its neck and the other end to the bumper of the man's truck, said Broward Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Veda Coleman-Wright.

Goobie said he got the idea from a scene in National Lampoon's Summer Vacation, Coleman-Wright said. In the movie, Chevy Chase's character ties the family's dog to the car bumper at a rest stop, forgets and drives away.
