IT sounds like the voltage regulator is going bad. In this case, it sounds like it is letting it overcharge for a split second. That is not good. If it was to continue doing that, it could burn things up. What I recommend is having the alt checked. The reagulator is an integral part of the alt. Most parts stores will do it for free.

Let me know what you find.
