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.
