A San Diego-area sea lion lived out the worst nightmare of ocean-dwelling teens everywhere this week, when his first day at a new school ended in the back of a squad car, the NY Daily News reports.

According to KNSD, administrators called police after spotting the flip-tailed transfer student outside Mar Vista High School in Imperial Beach on Wednesday. Authorities quickly apprehended the pup and Animal Control arrived soon after.

"The little guy was 'detained' without incident in the back of the patrol car," wrote the San Diego County Sheriff's Department in a statement. "While Deputy Sheriffs attempted to interview him as to his activities, he clammed-up and requested his lawyer."

In closely related news, more than 2,000 starving, disoriented sea lions have been found stranded on California beaches this year, twice as many as in 2013, the previous worst year on record. Happy Saturday, everybody!
