At least one prospective juror in New Jersey could take a bite out of crime.

Cumberland County has summoned IV Griner to jury duty. The only problem is that IV is a 5-year-old German shepherd.

Owner Barrett Griner IV tells KYW-TV in Philadelphia he figured out the mistake as soon as the summons arrived at his Bridgeton, N.J., home. He uses the Roman numeral for four in his name, whereas his dog is named using the letters "I'' and "V."

The county's judiciary coordinator says the computer likely misplaced the Roman numeral for Barrett's last name and mailed the summons.



"I had to laugh at it," Griner said of the mix-up – though we're sure IV is relieved.
