ALAMEDA COUNTY, Calif. — An unwanted hitchhiker took a ride with an Alameda County sheriff’s deputy after attaching himself to the patrol car’s windshield wiper.

The sheriff’s office tweeted a photo of the “suspect,” who deputies say “was last seen on foot running to a hiding spot. The suspect is 4 inches tall, weighing 1 ounce and wearing a grey and white fury coat.”
The post reads that the mouse popped up on deputy Brandon Dennington’s K-9 vehicle as he was headed to a work assignment at the Golden State Warriors game.
The bulletin suspects the mouse “was likely a San Antonio Spurs fan trying to intimidate us.”
Whether the deputy considered the suspect adorable or abhorrent is unclear.
A similar incident happened to a Colorado Springs police officer when a raccoon hurled himself on top of the patrol car.
