It’s No Monkey Business When Texas Officer Gets Bit During Traffic Stop [VIDEO]
Police deal with all sorts of situations, but for Aransas Pass Officer Keith Moore what happened during a routine traffic stop was some unexpected monkey business.
A pet monkey bit Officer Moore on the hand in an attack captured on videotape.
KRIS-TV in Corpus Christi reported Thursday that Moore had a video camera on his glasses during the traffic stop.
Moore is seen handing the driver something to sign when a monkey leaps from the back seat, bares its teeth and bites the officer’s right hand.
Moore says the monkey “came out of nowhere” during Wednesday’s incident. The bite left a mark, but the 21-year-old officer wasn’t hurt otherwise.
The trained monkey makes appearances at carnivals and other entertainment events.
