COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – You’ve probably heard of a police ride-a-long, but we guarantee you haven’t seen one like this.

A police officer in Colorado Springs was on his way to a car crash Thursday night when, out of nowhere, a raccoon jumped onto the windshield of his patrol car.

In a post on Facebook, police said the officer was “pawsitively surprised” to see the animal on his windshield.

The officer pulled the car over and the raccoon jumped off and went on its way.
