Cat in the act: VicPD return to cruiser during traffic stop to find curious feline friend (VIDEO)


From chasing toys to stopping crime, a four-legged feline has found a new profession in Victoria. 

Just before 2 a.m. on Sunday, January 15th, VicPD answered a call by a concerned citizen that witnessed a vehicle driving through two red lights. 

Police pulled over the reported vehicle in the 500-block of Kingston Street, where police say the driver displayed clear signs of drug related impairment. 

An officer issued a standard field sobriety test demand to the driver who initially started the test, but then refused to continue, resulting in a 24-hour driving prohibition and their vehicle being towed.

When the officer returned to his vehicle, he discovered that an unauthorized entry had been made by a furry friend.

Though surprised, the officer chose not to detain the curious cat, releasing the occupant to the roadside. 

As for those impaired by alcohol or other substances, VicPD advises the public to take a taxi, use transit or arrange a designated driver.
