Hamster Placed In Police Protective Custody Following DUI Stop

Dateline Beaverton, Oregon

Local authorities placed a hamster into protective custody after its owner, an intoxicated driver, was arrested.

Early Tuesday morning, three officers with the Beaverton Police pulled over 27-year-old Nicole Huey after suspecting her of driving while intoxicated, according to Oregon Live.

During the 12:30 a.m. stop, officers reportedly observed the hamster – whose name is not known – placed in her lap.

It was the only other occupant in the car, the website learned.

When Huey stepped out of the car, she placed the hamster on the dashboard. At that point, officers allegedly attempted to take the animal as well.

According to Officer Mike Rowe, the task was easier said than done.

“It took three officers to capture the furry little passenger,” Rowe was quoted as saying on the department’s Facebook page. “It appeared that the hamster wanted to stay in the vehicle, and it put up a good fight trying to avoid capture.”

The hamster was reportedly taken to the Emergency Veterinary Clinic of Tualatin. Huey was arrested for driving under the influence and held at Washington County Jail.

Upon her release, she reclaimed the animal from the clinic, according to Oregon Live.

The comments are hilarious and makes me suspect some FR are moonlighting. For example, Daniel Martin Gray commented:

HAMSTERS have RIGHTS, TOO! What is the HAMSTER'S CRIME, to be ILLEGALLY DETAINED? Where is the EBT card for this Rodent-American? Why have we not APOLOGIZED for millenia of OPPRESSION? When will we make AMENDS and REPARATIONS? How will this HAMSTER VOTE, without ID?

I immediately thought of an actor who the hamster would need a restraining order from but I didn’t want to go there any more than the hamster

I don’t know, but John F. Kerry once gave CPR to a hamster and saved its life.

He or she wasn’t wearing a seatbelt and then resisted arrest or a ticket.

Stupid cops. They missed a great opportunity for some target practice...

The cops should have just shot it like they do with other pets they encounter.

Actually, they had just run out of ammo because they “Sprayed & Prayed” as they shot the dogs at a home in the neighborhood. Can you imaging what the Fuzzmobile would have looked like after they finally shot the hamster?

Fortunately, they could not have shot the hamster if they had to - no ammo. Not to mention the probability of them being bad shots, too.

Stunned that they didn't spend 3-4 min beating it with batons and fists.

Remember the car in the Bonnie & Clyde movie (Warren Beatty/Faye Dunaway)...the one they died in? That’s what I’m thinking it would look like.

Would be kinda funny though, now that I think about it...the cops blasting away at this poor little Guinea pig...him scooting in and around, under and over...and then the Guinea pig pops up later like the ground hog at the end of Caddyshack.

NOT my fault.

The hamster must have done something wrong, and I had NOTHING AT ALL to do with it.

Hopefully there wasn’t a cat in the same safe-house.
