A man was arrested for drunk driving and other charges after police found him hiding in a tree, claiming to be an owl.

A Massachusetts state trooper observed Troy Prockett, 37, swerving while driving, eventually hitting a snow bank and coming to a stop before fleeing on foot.

After about an hour, police found Prockett hiding 30 feet up a tree.

When police yelled at him to come down, Prockett responded, "I'm an owl."

A fire department was eventually called to retrieve the man with a bucket truck.

Prockett was charged with drunk driving, resisting arrest, and fleeing the scene.
