Michelle Owen had a brilliant idea about how to resolve a custody dispute with her ex-boyfriend and babydaddy.
She decided to tell the police about some kiddie porn that she claimed he had downloaded onto a laptop. She even invited the police to examine the laptop. They examined the laptop, and did in fact find incriminating files. Of Michelle. With a dog.
Owen, 24, was charged last week with two felony bestiality counts in connection with the video files, which a detective found in the laptop's "recycle bin." At the time Owen asked cops to search the computer, she was locked up in the Johnson County Jail on a public intoxication charge (which violated the terms of her release in a prior drunk driving case). According to a police affidavit, a copy of which you'll find here, a cop told Owen that he had found videos of her on the laptop and asked if she "knew what those files might be." Owen, pictured in the below mug shot, replied, "The one with the dog." Cops believe that the dog in question, Toby, is a beagle. After asking if she was "going to be charged with this," Owen said that the videos "were just something she did when she was drunk and barely remembers it," adding that she tried to "delete them the next day when she was sober."Michelle seems to do really stupid things when she's drunk. Like having sex with a dog. And videotaping it. And making sure the police find it. When she gets out of jail, she should stop drinking. For realz.
And as perplexing as all of this is, the thing I really don't get is, why did she and the ex-boyfriend break up in the first place? They seem perfect for each other.
