(Meredith) – A mouse who was probably late for dinner decided to hitch a ride on a police officer’s car in California.

The Alameda County Sheriff’s Office posted the video on their Facebook page, showing the tiny rodent gripping the front of the window. The post has gone viral, garnering more than 4,000 shares.

The police department used the hilarious moment to ask the public for their help in locating the "4-inch tall, one-ounce suspect" who slipped away after the officer stopped the car.

Here's what the post said:

We are not sure if this was an attempted carjacking but this little mouse popped up on the windshield of Deputy Brandon Dennington’s K9 vehicle.

Deputy Dennington was headed to his work assignment at the Golden State Warriors game. Further investigation revealed the suspect was likely a San Antonio Spurs fan trying to intimidate us.

Deputy Dennington was able to use de-escalation techniques and get the rabid fan off his car. Luckily, he was able to snap this photo of the elusive bandit. The suspect was last seen on foot running to a hiding spot.

The suspect is 4 inches tall, weighing 1 ounce and wearing a grey and white fur coat. Thankfully, the Warriors won and Deputy Dennington got to the game on time.
