Parrot tells cops his owner is drunk driving

Parrot Tells Cops His Owner Is Drunk Driving

A man in Mexico found himself in very hot water after getting tattled on by his own pet!

Yes, 49-year-old Guillermo Reyes was busted for allegedly driving drunk thanks to his honest pet yelling out 'he's drunk, he's drunk' in Spanish.

According to El Universal, the squawk must have been pretty clear because the cops originally thought there was another person in the car. Then, they saw the cute green bird inside. Animal Surveillance Brigade was called to take the chatty parrot away, but Reyes was able to talk them out of it.

He told authorities he and his pet had never been separated and he feared it might die if they weren't together. So the two hung out in jail together.

Reyes was taken to El Torito's 'hangover prison,' where intoxicated drivers go to sleep off the booze and sober up, the NY Daily News reports.

Reyes must really regret teaching his parrot to say anything other than 'Polly wanna cracker?'

The parrot is smarter than his owner. Even he knows what may happen when the choice is made to drive after drinking. I say give the parrot a hero badge. He may have kept his owner from killing an innocent person.

His owner only went to some place they call hangover something to sleep it off. WHAT? No DUI? That's what the cops do there when u get pulled over take you to some place to sleep it off? That's just so wrong. He is lucky he didn't kill someone.

Could it be that the Parrot wanted to feel closer to Reyes so he made sure Reyes was in a cage ?????
Parrot and stove top stuffing when Reyes sobers up.
