Hit-and-Run on the Bowery Leaves Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner’s Dog Dead

Posted on: July 29th, 2019 at 5:02 am by

Winter came to newlyweds Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner last week.

One month after the surprise nuptials, their pet canine, an Alaskan Klee Kai puppy named Waldo, was struck by a car last Wednesday night at Bowery and Broome. According to published reports in all the gossip rags, the dog-walker had been out late, and something spooked the mini husky. Waldo broke free, then darted into traffic.

It was reportedly a hit-and-run, as the as-yet-unidentified driver fled the scene.

The 5th Precinct released the following statement regarding the incident. The “female complainant” referenced could be Sophie Turner, but cops wouldn’t confirm.

A police report was filed for a motor vehicle collision involving a dog struck at Bowery & Broome Street, within the confines of the 5th Precinct. On Friday, July 26, 2019, a female complainant filed a report stating, on Wednesday, July, 24, 2019 at approximately 2335 hours, a vehicle struck the dog, did not stop and left the scene. The dog was brought to the hospital where the dog later died. There is no vehicle or driver description. We cannot confirm names of the person filing the report nor can we confirm the owners of the dog. No further information is available.
