Man Jailed For Drunk Driving With 100 Chickens in His SUV

A Nebraska man is now in jail for 108 days after being sentenced Tuesday for a DUI and livestock neglect after being pulled over for driving drunk with 100 chickens in his SUV.

Luis Motola-Palacio, of Grand Island, was pulled over during a routine traffic check on Jan. 31 of this year—authorities discovered 100 chickens, half of which were dead, crammed in the back of his car. Fifty-eight of the chickens survived, while the remaining 42 perished, crushed under the weight of their brethren.

Police arrested Motola-Palacio for assault in 2013 when he shot Michal Garcia-Rivera in the leg at close range, during an argument as they butchered a pig in a garage.
