FULSHEAR, TX — A patrol car’s dash cam captured a spider giving Nickey Braly a trick instead of a treat by seemingly sneaking up behind the policeman during what should have been a routine traffic stop.

And the eight-legged creature’s on-camera debut has now become a huge hit.

“Who needs Hollywood special effects?” the Fulshear Police Department asked, explaining, “This little guy was positioned perfectly on the windshield of the patrol car and gave our clerk, who was reviewing the video, quite the ‘Halloween scare.’

“…It appears as though a giant spider is about to eat Officer Braly,” the City of Fulshear noted on Facebook of the video.
