NORTH RIDGEVILLE – Police in northeast Ohio said they received a call from a man walking home early Saturday morning claiming he was being followed by a pig.

That's right. A pig. Police didn't believe it, either.

The North Ridgeville Police Department said it responded to the “obviously drunk guy walking home from the bar at 5:26 in the morning” in Elyria.

When police arrived, they found a man who was not drunk at all. And apparently, he was telling the truth.

Police confessed the man was not walking from the bar named "Train Station" but rather from the actual Amtrak station.

And what did they find? You guessed it: a pig following the sober man.

An officer managed to wrangle the pig in the back of a cruiser. The pig was then taken to the station.

The police even took the moment on their facebook page to mention the irony: "Also, we will mention the irony of the pig in a police car now so that anyone that thinks they’re funny is actually unoriginal and trying too hard."

Police said later the pig was returned to its rightful owner.
