CLEARWATER, Florida -- (CNN) Forget Toonces the driving cat -- here's Finley the driving iguana.
Heads were turning in Clearwater, Florida, Thursday when they saw a car apparently being driven by the 3-foot-long lizard, his claws clenched around the wheel.
Two plainclothes cops say they were among those doing double-takes, and they followed the car for a couple of miles until it pulled over.
They then found Finley's owner slouched down in the seat. He was arrested for drunken driving and taken to jail. Finley was taken to an animal shelter.
