Deputy Carl Zink of the Garvin County Sheriff's Office found himself in a sticky situation when he was swarmed by honeybees after responding to the scene of an overturned tractor-trailer on Interstate 35 in Oklahoma.
The big rig was carrying millions of bees, and the furious, confused insects attacked the police cars when they arrived. Zink captured the incident on video from inside his SUV, as well as this photo of what the engulfed vehicle looked like from outside:
Here's Zink's first video, in which he is completely surrounded:

Finally, the Fire Department arrived and hosed off the front of the truck, after which Zink says the bees regrouped in the rear. Here, his video has been added to news chopper footage of the scene:
According to the Sheriff's Office, Zink was assisting with traffic control "when his unit became disabled at the accident scene due to the bees covering the windows," which is a very mild way of saying "when nightmares came to life." Apparently, the deputy made it out with only one sting! Was it this guy?
Aww. It would be cute if it weren't an advance scout for millions of its vengeful beethren.
