Is that a mouse in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?
That's what police were asking John Jacobson after he allegedly tried to steal a whole pack of beer from a truck as it was being loaded into a store!
But that's not the bizarre part of the story. Not even close!
After he was caught by the store owner, Jacobson assaulted the owner before running away.
Police tracked him down, and when they arrested him - they found a live mouse in his pocket!
So they contacted the suspect's father, who claimed possession of the the mouse before the suspect was taken away to jail.
We're glad the mouse is okay!!!
