The deputy watched as the driver of a silver pickup with one operating headlight swerved all over the road Saturday night before nearly plowing head-on into a stopped vehicle.
The truck lurched away and the deputy pulled over the man, suspecting that his reckless driving was because he was drunk.
That much was apparently true, as Warren Thomas Michael III of Fleming Island, near Jacksonville, later registered a .156 blood-alcohol level, nearly twice the legal limit in Florida.
But Michael told the Clay County deputy something else was wrong: Inside his shirt, a small squirrel was “eating” him.
The deputy looked and sure enough, the 23-year-old had a small squirrel peeking out from his clothing.
