Mice have been seen falling the from ceiling tiles of one Florida county courthouse.
Some staffers say they check their handbags for stowaways before leaving the building, MSNBC.com reported.
The courthouse employees and lawyers say the mice run down corridors, munch on legal papers and scratch behind the walls.
One mouse even ran around a courtroom floor for an hour during a burglary trial.
The courthouse facilities manager said he's put out several dozen traps and says the rodents are getting more press than they deserve.
