KILLEN, Ala. (AP) – An Alabama man who denied feeding methamphetamine to a so-called “attack squirrel” has been arrested on new charges.

The Limestone County Sheriff’s Office tweeted that 35-year-old Mickey Paulk was caught Thursday night after fleeing drug investigators on a stolen motorcycle.

Paulk was sought on multiple felony warrants unrelated to the squirrel he named “Deeznutz,” who became infamous after police said they’d been warned that it was fueled on meth and trained to attack.
