Man Arrested for DUI with Zebra and Parrot as Passengers

Sounds like this guy had one too many sips of Parrot Bay.

A man, a zebra and a parrot walk into a bar. No punchline; this isn’t a joke.

A man in Dubuque, Iowa-who just so happens to like taking his pet zebra and macaw parrot to his local watering hole-was arrested on Sunday for driving drunk. After dinner and a few drinks, Jerald Reiter was given a field sobriety test in the parking lot of the Dog House Lounge before being placed into custody.

Reiter explained to the officers that he brought along his zebra and parrot because they are his friends and like to ride in the car. He sometimes even brings the animals with him into the bar. However, when a group of people starting taking pictures with the animals this time around, he was told that they weren’t allowed in the establishment. While the arrest was taking place, Reiter tried to explain that he was just about to let a passenger begin driving because he shouldn’t have been. No word yet on if that designated driver was going to be the zebra, the parrot or another human.

For the record, the animals did not have anything to drink, they are not voiced by Chris Rock or Ben Stiller, and this is not a plot point from “Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted.”
