The Limestone County Sheriff’s Office has located and arrested a man wanted for crimes unrelated to his now famous “attack squirrel.”

Mickey Paulk, 35, was arrested Thursday night by LCSO narcotics investigators. Investigators were conducting surveillance at America’s Best Value Inn in Killen, Ala. when Paulk left on a stolen motorcycle.

Following a brief pursuit, Paulk rammed an investigator vehicle and was arrested.

He is being booked into the Limestone County with additional charges of attempting to elude police, criminal mischief, felon in possession of weapon, and receiving stolen property.

Paulk was originally wanted by investigators for possession of a controlled substance, certain persons forbidden to possess a firearm, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Prior to the original search warrant, investigators were informed that Mickey Paulk kept an “attack squirrel” inside his apartment, and that Paulk allegedly fed the squirrel meth to keep it aggressive.
