It's unclear if this possum committed a crime yesterday while on 880, or if the beast was merely detained by the California Highway Patrol for his or her own safety. The bottom line: he/she is off the streets.

Critics of this photo, beware: Los Angeles County's CHP division is ready to defend their neighbors to the north from those who suggest the Oakland officer was in the wrong.

The glass might be half empty or half full...but it's all possum.
