A woman from Clearwater, Florida, attempted to deceive a court-ordered drug test by substituting her own urine with that of a dog.

Clearwater, Florida

Jessica Beatty, 42, reportedly concocted this scheme as she was apprehensive about the result of the mandatory test which could have led to her bond being revoked and her instant arrest.

Previous Arrests

As part of her release terms, after a December 28 arrest for possession of drug paraphernalia and driving with a suspended license, Beatty was obligated to partake in random testing.

Beatty, who has multiple cocaine convictions, submitted what was called a fraudulent urine sample for her appointment with the county's Misdemeanor Probation Unit, according to the police.

Suspicious Sample

Following suspicion around the credibility of the sample, Beatty reportedly admitted to gathering the urine from her aunt’s dog, planning to submit it as her own during the test. The specific methods and equipment used to procure the canine sample were not mentioned in the police complaint.

Facing Charges

As the provision of a urine sample for these tests is overseen visually by a probation officer, it can be difficult to deceive authorities. Consequently, the fraudulent attempt was noticed and Beatty was apprehended at the probation office.

She is now facing charges for fraudulent practices involving urine testing, a misdemeanor. After the incident, the previous order freeing Beatty due to her drug and driving case was also revoked by a judge.
