Police: Squirrel tries to ‘carjack’ cruiser, flees scene

(WHDH) — Police in Florida say an officer was startled Monday when a squirrel tried to “carjack” his cruiser before fleeing the scene on foot.

An officer in Port Saint Lucie was parked outside a convenience store when a curious four-legged rodent jumped up on the squad car and started peering in at him.

“Squirrel tries to carjack PSLPD officer while he was parked in a convenience store parking lot. Squirrel got away after fleeing scene,” police wrote in a Facebook post.

Photos of the alleged perpetrator have since been shared hundreds of times.
