This has to be one of the best stories I've seen in a long while:
Police in Mexico City said a drunken
driving suspect stopped at an alcohol checkpoint was betrayed by his pet
parrot, which told police "he's drunk."
Investigators said Guillermo Reyes, 49, was pulled over last week at a
routine checkpoint in the city and officers heard a voice in the car
repeating "he's drunk, he's drunk," Spanish-language newspaper El
Universal reported Tuesday.
Police said they looked inside the vehicle, expecting to find another person, but instead discovered Reyes' pet parrot.
failed a sobriety test and was arrested on a drunken driving charge.
The parrot was supposed to be taken away by Animal Surveillance Brigade
officers, but Reyes told them the bird is with him at all times and
could suffer stress if separated.
The parrot was allowed to accompany Reyes to jail.
