VIDEO: Monkey attacks officer at traffic stop

---- — Police get used to people being a bit less than friendly after a traffic stop, but having a monkey attack? That's not something in the training manual.

An officer in Texas got the surprise of his career when giving a driver a ticket. The driver's monkey (yes, monkey) lunged out of the back seat and bit the officer on the hand.

The officer seemed more stunned than hurt. The driver? He was stunned and still had to pay the ticket.
