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 has better survival instincts than the human! That is "messed-up dudue!"

Oh come on. The parrot probably repeats that same phrase under myriad circumstances. It just so happened that the unlucky owner was in the described state at the time. Wonder if the bird was taught that particular phrase because the owner is an alcoholic?

I love this bird, maybe we could get a new crime stopping group of these birds to come up to NY and help us out here. Imagine a fluent speaking bird in both Spanish and English riding around with the police!! I is great fun thinking about it.

Next step, since the parrot is with him wherever he goes, teach the parrot to count his drinks and let him know when he's had enough. Then the parrot tellsl the bartender no more drinks..

BTW, what's the parrot's name? (Some reporters . . . .)

i am sure they knew the man was drunk. and i am sure they tested him. I doubt seriously they needed the word from the parrot, but it makes for a good story.

You sound like someone whose life depends on making some nasty comment about "the O regime" no matter what the subject.

Unlike Barack Insane who NEVER had a bad word to say about anything. The idiot can't speak without demonizing his opponents
