Warren, Ohio (CBS) It was a squirrely situation.
Wayne Mackey, a Warren, Ohio police detective, has seen a lot during his years on the force, but nothing prepared him for what happened a few weeks ago, when he was interviewing a witness on a recent murder case.
At one point in the interview, the woman, wearing a skimpy tank top, leaned over and out of her bosom crept a baby squirrel that was nestled in the woman's cleavage. The woman, seemingly unfazed, gently put the small creature back inside her shirt and continued talking to the detective.
The shocked detective said that he was at a loss for words. "The squirrel seemed quite happy," Mackey said.
It is not clear if the squirrel is the woman's pet or even why she decided to bring with her for the interview.
The two are not expected to be called to testify during the trial.
