Oak Creek, Wisconsin, Police pulled over a drunken, Sunday driver with a chicken on his shoulder. Officers responded after receiving reports from other drivers of a man swerving over the road with a bird on his person.
According to ABC station WISN 12:
A 911 caller said a man was swerving down the road with a bird on his shoulder.
Sure enough, when police pulled the man over near Howell Avenue and Centennial Drive on Sunday he had a chicken with him.
Distracted driving is nothing new, and unfortunately, drunken driving is all too common, but the chicken took it to another level.
"There's a guy behind us. ... He's driving really reckless, but he has a hawk in his car," a 911 caller said.
Oak Creek police found out it wasn’t a hawk but a brown chicken.
They pulled it from the car and put it in the back of the squad car with the driver's cousin.
According to the officer's report, besides numerous open cans of beer, he also noticed "a live chicken that was fluttering around the inside of the vehicle."
I guess we finally know why the chicken crossed the road, or in this case all over the road...to get a beer! Please egg-scuse me for my corny joke, I'm a comedi-hen! P.S.-Don't drink and drive.
