Drunk Driver Busted After Pet Parrot Squawks to Police

This is why parrots make bad pets: Last week, a man was reportedly busted for drunk driving after his pet parrot told police, "he's drunk."

Police in Mexico stopped Guillermo Reyes at a routine checkpoint last week. When he rolled down his window, officers heard someone—or something—shout, "he's drunk, he's drunk," according to Spanish-language paper El Universal.

Expecting to find another person, the officers found the talkative parrot instead.

Not willing to take the parrot's word for it, police gave Reyes a road-side sobriety test, which he failed. He was quickly arrested on charges of drunken driving.

But there's at least some good news: The parrot, who Reyes said suffered from separation-induced anxiety issues, was allowed to go with him to jail.
