A police officer was unable to contain her shock after a lizard jumped out of a suspect’s pocket while she performed a search.

The officer, from Chico Police Department in California, was going through the suspect’s pockets while cracking light-hearted jokes with the man.

She was midway through asking the man, named Terry, if he had any dope when the reptile sprang from his pocket, causing her to scream.

The suspect said ‘It’s just a lizard’ – and luckily the police officer saw the funny side of the incident, laughing after her screams subsided.

She said: ‘Terry! You gave me a heart attack. That is not okay.

‘Do you have any other creepy critters in your pockets?

‘That was not cool – you gave me a fright.’

Terry was apologetic over the scare, with the clip ending as he was led away in handcuffs.

It is unclear what he had been arrested for, but a large bottle of open liquor could be seen on the hood of a nearby car.

And it was bad news for Terry’s burgeoning friendship with the lizard, which scurried away shortly after making its escape from his coat.
