BRIDGETON, N.J. — 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 IV is a 5-year-old German Shepherd.

Her owner tells KYW-TV in Philadelphia he figured out the mistake as soon as the summons arrived at his Bridgeton home.

The dog's owner is Barrett Griner IV. He uses the Roman numeral for four in his name. He named his dog 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.
