OAKLAND, Calif. (KGTV) — Oakland CHP officers said they'd stopped a young deer on a California toll bridge "for toll evasion." 

CHP Officer Matthew Hamer says two officers were on patrol on the bridge early Tuesday when the deer came out of the woods on Treasure Island and walked in front of their car.

The doe froze with a deer-in-the-headlights look staring at the officers for a couple of minutes, and then returned to the woods.

One officer photographed the doe standing in the middle of an on-ramp on the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge.

The officer joked in a Tweet that the fawn usually pays the toll but "today she was a buck short."
