Trampled Cop Dubbed "Buffalo Bill"

Baltimore County Police Detective Ed Spragg is taking some good natured ribbing from his colleagues and enjoying his 15 minutes of infamy via the cable news bonanza surrounding yesterdays coverage of an escaped bison herd in Pikesville, Maryland.

Fellow officers have given Spragg a new nickname to commemorate his unfortunate showdown with a recalcitrant bison, “Buffalo Bill.”

Spragg could have the last laugh, as the herd owner told reporters he’s planning on sending the animals off the slaughterhouse.

I guess that's another reason it's called "dope..."
"We're from the government and we're here to help you!"
