23-year-old Warren Michael was pulled over in Fleming Island, FL last weekend and startled police when they saw something crawling around under his shirt. Turned out it was his pet squirrel. Also turned out that Michael was drunk, and unable to answer simple questions. After securing the animal, police had him undergo sobriety tests. According to a police report, Michael told police that the squirrel was "eating" him, but Michael later said the squirrel was just resting.

He was arrested and charged with DUI and driving without a seat belt. His squirrel and vehicle were released to his girlfriend. Maybe he should've just asked the squirrel to drive.
