In this video, a Texas police officer gets an unexpected surprise while trying to write someone a ticket.

The officer had a camera on his glasses.  While handing an electronic ticketing device to the driver, a monkey jumps out of the backseat and bites the officer on the hand.

The officer said it seemed like the monkey came out of nowhere.  It left a bite mark on the officer’s hand, but the officer was otherwise OK.

The monkey makes appearances at carnivals and other events.
