ARANSAS PASS, Texas - A South Texas police officer had to deal with some unexpected monkey business as he wrote a speeding ticket.
A pet monkey bit Aransas Pass Officer Keith Moore on the hand in an attack captured on videotape.
KRIS-TV in Corpus Christi reported 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 the incident. The bite left a mark, but the 21-year-old officer was not hurt otherwise.
The trained monkey makes appearances at carnivals and other entertainment events.
