Ala. ‘attack squirrel’ suspect arrested

An Alabama man who denied feeding methamphetamine to a so-called "attack squirrel" he considered a pet has been arrested on new charges.

The Limestone County Sheriff's Office said deputies were surveilling a Lauderdale County hotel when Paulk left the establishment on a stolen motorcycle. The sheriff's office said Paulk had a gun in his waistband when he was captured. After a brief pursuit, Paulk rammed an investigator vehicle and was arrested.

Paulk told reporters last week that he was working on a plan for turning himself in to authorities.

Paulk had been on the run since earlier this month when the Limestone County Sheriff's Office tried to arrest him on possession of a controlled substance, certain persons forbidden to possess a firearm and possession of drug paraphernalia charges.

He faces charges of receiving stolen property, attempting to elude, criminal mischief, and felon in possession of a pistol. Deputies searched an apartment after they received tips about an "attack squirrel" being fed meth to keep it aggressive.

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.

The squirrel garnered national fame when the story came to light, including its own Twitter account.

Paulk said the squirrel, which he kept as a pet, was safe and not a threat to anyone.
