ARANSAS PASS, Texas (CBS Houston) — One monkey goes bananas during a traffic stop in Texas.

According to KRIS-TV, the animal attacked Aransas Pass Officer Keith Moore’s hand while he was writing a ticket to a driver for speeding.

A camera on Moore’s sunglasses caught the monkey coming out of the back seat and lunging at his hand when Moore went to hand the driver a pen.

“My sergeant thought I had initially got stung with a bee but it wasn’t,” Moore told KRIS. “I ended up telling him when I was walking back that it was a monkey that came out of nowhere.”

Moore was still in shock when he told his fellow officer what happened.

“He’s got a monkey and it attacked my hand,” Moore told his partner. “I’m not even kidding.”

The monkey left a mark on Moore’s hand but the driver wasn’t cited for the animal attack.

KRIS learned that the monkey makes appearances at carnivals and festivals.
