SAN­FORD, Fla. ( AP) — A le­mur sur­prised a Florida High­way Patrol trooper when it crawled from a trailer be­ing pulled by a pickup truck that had been stopped for driv­ing er­rat­i­cally and hit­ting other cars.

Dash­cam video shows the le­mur peek­ing out of the trailer be­fore hop­ping to the ground and leap­ing around the trooper, who was talk­ing to the driver along In­ter­state 4 in San­ford on Dec. 1. The video shows the trooper do­ing a dou­ble­take as the le­mur runs around and stands on its hind legs.

The driver, Shane Taylor, 27, warned troop­ers that the le­mur named Miko “bites.” Taylor was ar­rested on sev­eral charges in­clud­ing DUI.
