Routine traffic stop makes primate passenger go bananas
ARANSAS PASS, TX — Aransas Pass police officer Keith Moore just joined the force three months ago. Extensive training has taught him to be vigilant pretty much 24/7.
But while Moore was writing someone a traffic ticket on Wednesday, something happened that the police academy did not prepare him for. A monkey hiding in the back seat of the truck reached forward as the officer asked for a signature and attacked his hand.
And the camera attached to his glasses caught the whole thing.
“My sergeant thought I had initially got stung by a bee, but it wasn’t. I ended up telling him when I was walking back that it was a monkey that came out of nowhere,” said Moore.
