PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A man with a monkey on his back was arrested Wednesday in Burien, Washington. Literally.

Police say a reckless driver was spotted on SR 509 going 112 miles per hour. The driver exited the highway, lost control, and hit a rock in a yard. The driver then jumped from the car and ran off with a monkey on his back.

Officers found the man and his monkey hiding nearby. The pet has been released, because, as police said on Facebook, “he was only engaged in monkey business.”
