Fly on the Wall 1381 

Jason Miles crawls through a doggie door, Lauren Crews threatens nakedity.

Doggie Style

Like a similarly named character from the Friday the 13th movies, Jason Miles just keeps showing up in this column. As Fly on the Wall has reported on many occasions (and as recently as last week), the WMC reporter does whatever it takes to get to the bottom of things. Maybe that means he chest-bumps a cop. Maybe he smuggles a secret swab into restaurant bathrooms looking for errant bits of fecal matter. But most often it means that he literally gets down on all fours and scampers about like a critter. Over the years, we have shared images of Miles crawling under cars and buildings. Last week, while reporting a Memphis burglary, the newsman tweeted this picture.

Yes, that's Miles attempting to fit through a doggie door. At this point, we're pretty sure he's just trolling.  

Verbatim

"If there's any way they have done good for that neighborhood, I'll stand on top of that building for a week naked." — Downtown Quality Inn owner Lauren Crews explaining to WMC's Kontji Anthony how his property has remained abandoned for more than two decades, in part, because residents of the French Fort neighborhood have somehow "blocked progress with investors." We're pretty sure this is a threat to hedge against further investigation.
