CAUGHT ON TAPE: Monkey bites police officer during traffic stop

Caught On Tape: Monkey biting police officer // CBS News Image

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 Thursday 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 Wednesday's 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.
