Leaping lemur surprises Florida trooper during DUI arrest
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.
