A Washington State Trooper detained a man -and a monkey- for driving 112 MPH and leaving the scene of an accident on Wednesday.
According to Q13Fox, the driver was clocked doing 112 as it passed by the State Trooper and shortly after lost control while making an exit onto the main road, striking a large rock in a nearby yard.
Witnesses later told police that the driver jumped from his car, only to return when he realized he forgot his pet monkey. With a monkey on his back, the man was easy to identify.
“Burien officers found him and his partner-in-crime nearby and placed them both into custody for leaving the scene of an accident,” Burien police wrote on their social media page. “Once we determined the monkey was not the driver, we released him to a family member since he was only engaged in monkey business.”
