A man accused by police of feeding methamphetamines to his pet squirrel to make him an "attack squirrel" has been arrested.
Police officers in Alabama had been looking for Mickey Paulk for nearly two weeks.
Paulk, who had been hiding in a hotel, was arrested on Thursday after he attempted to flee from drug investigators on a stolen motorcycle, according to police. He crashed into an investigator's vehicle after a brief pursuit, police said.
The case against the 35-year-old Alabama man escalated June 17 when narcotics investigators executed a search warrant "that yielded meth, drug paraphernalia, body armor and a squirrel."
"Prior to the search warrant, investigators were informed that Mickey Paulk kept an 'attack squirrel' inside his apartment, and that Paulk fed the squirrel meth to keep it aggressive," the Limestone County Sheriff's Office in Athens, Alabama, said in a statement.
Paulk wasn't home, however. The search for the squirrel's owner was on.
