TEXAS - Talk about going bananas.

During a routine traffic stop in Texas, a monkey attacked Officer Keith Moore's hand while he was writing a ticket to a driver for speeding.

A camera lodged onto Moore's sunglasses caught the entire scene on camera.

"My sergeant thought I had initially got stung with a bee but it wasn't," Moore told KRIS. "I ended up telling him when I was walking back that it was a monkey that came out of nowhere." Moore was still in shock when he told his fellow officer what happened.

"He's got a monkey and it attacked my hand, "Moore told his partner. "I'm not even kidding."
