BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – An Alabama man wanted on drug and weapons charges, has posted a video to deny he was fed methamphetamine to a so-called “strike one” and that he is of the opinion that it is an animal.
Mickey Paulk posted the video on his Facebook page Tuesday night as authorities continued to search for him. It shows him touching a small animal that he is, gives the same was seized with a search warrant and subsequently released by the authorities.
“You can’t give the chipmunks speed; it would kill him. I’m pretty sure of that, but I’ve never tried this before,” he said.
He said he was the one that he kept as a pet was safe and secure and do not pose a threat to anyone.
“The public is not in danger, in a kind of way of the methed-out, one-in the area,” Paulk said with a smile.
Stephen Young, a spokesperson for the Limestone County Sheriff’s Office, said Wednesday investigators are still looking for Paulk, 35, who has an extensive criminal record.
“Yes, yes, we are aware of the video,” he said. “Yes, that’s him in the video.”
The police said they were notified about a meth-fueled, well-trained attack squirrel, for the execution of a drug search at a house in the neighborhood of Athens, Alabama, on Monday. A man was arrested in the house, and the police have said that they would release the caged one.
In this video, Paulk refused to live in the house, and said that he was going to be there after the raid and saw it as the pet squirrel in a tree. The beast scampered down and jumped on his back, ” he said.
“I just went in and did it,” said Paulk, who is wanted on warrants that accuse him of possessing drugs and an illegal weapon.
Deputies released the squirrel in the trees near the house, Young said, but there was no way to tell if the world is to be seen in the video is the same one released by the officers after the raid.
“We don’t know if he’s even, perhaps, two of the squirrels,” he said. “It would just be pure speculation.”
