Running away from police officers these days is likely to get you tased or shot, unless you're a goat.

According to NJ.com, a runaway goat on the Pulaski Skyway in Jersey City resulted in a four-car accident and a 90-minute police chase (video below).

The quick-moving goat managed to evade police by jumping over the highway’s divider and leaping on top of cars.

Jersey City Police were only able to capture the goat because the animal grew tired.

This judge looked an inmate square in the eyes and did something that left the entire courtroom in tears:

The goat, who is nicknamed "Sky," was released to a rescue farm in Wantage, New Jersey.

The police do not know how the goat got on the Pulaski Skyway, but it does have a USDA tag, which suggests the animal escaped during a trip to a slaughter house.

An employee at American Halal Meats, a slaughter house in Newark, told NJ.com that the company was not missing any goats.

Officials said that if nobody comes forward to claim the goat, the animal will probably live at the rescue farm.
