Dog leaps from open car window on busy southeast Charlotte road

An adventurous dog's brush with the law was caught on camera after it leaped from its owner's moving vehicle in to the path of highway traffic in southeast Charlotte. 

The dog was filmed by FOX 46 Charlotte's Brian Christiansen as it jumped from its owner's vehicle on Independence at Albemarle Thursday morning. 

The area went down to two lanes due to the dog being loose. 

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police arrived on scene to help catch the dog before it seriously hurt itself or others on the roadway. Luckily, officers were able to catch the fearless pup!
