Deputies Nab Troublesome Squirrel Aka Chewy
MARY LOUISE KELLY, Host:
Good morning. I'm Mary Louise Kelly.
It took them two weeks, but deputies in Oklahoma City finally got their squirrel. The furry fugitive allegedly chewed through wires in several patrol cars, earning the nickname Chewy. The department announced Chewy's capture in a tweet. A Twitter user going by the name OKCbadsquirrel claimed he'd been wrongly accused and demanded a lawyer. The sheriff says Chewy will be pardoned and released far from the parking lot.
