One rookie Aransas Pass Police Officer now has quite the interesting story to tell after a crazy traffic stop is caught on camera.
“We’re taught to be on guard at all times,” he said.
While Moore was writing someone a traffic ticket on Wednesday, however, something happened that the police academy did not prepare him for. Footage from the officer’s sunglasses’ camera shows Moore asking the driver to sign a citation. The video shows the officer reaching into the truck to hand the driver a pen when a monkey hiding in the back seat lunges forward and attacks the officer’s hand. The officer jumped back in shock and went to his patrol car to tell his sergeant what happened.
“My sergeant thought I had initially got stung with a bee but it wasn’t,” Moore said. “I ended up telling him when I was walking back that it was a monkey that came out of nowhere.”
