ATHENS, Ala. — Limestone County Sheriff’s Office narcotics investigators have arrested a wanted man with a famous pet squirrel.
Investigators spotted Mickey Paulk while doing surveillance at America’s Best Value Inn in Killen. Paulk fled on a stolen motorcycle and rammed an investigator’s vehicle during a brief chase before he was arrested, according to authorities.
Paulk was wanted for possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia.
The Alabama Game and Fish Division of the Department of Conservation issued a warrant for Paulk’s arrest.
According to game and fish, it’s illegal to possess, sell or import wild animals and they say Paulk’s Facebook video with the squirrel is incriminating.
