(RNN) – Why did the turtle cross the road? We may never know.

Williamson County, TX, Sheriff Robert Chody confronted a jaywalking turtle this week, but the turtle wasn't having it.

“I was trying to help this little guy out. I don’t think he appreciated my efforts. My heroic act for the day?? #TurtlesMatter,” Chody said on Twitter.

As Chody approached, the turtle quickly did a U-turn and shuffled off into the grass.

The suspect is still at large.
