Usually the worst thing a pet can do is scratch up some furniture or ruin a rug. Not many people can say their pet got them ARRESTED.
Last week, 49-year-old Guillermo Reyes was driving through Mexico City when he got stopped at a DUI checkpoint. And while the cops were talking to him, they heard another voice in the car yell, "He's drunk, he's drunk!"
So they shined a flashlight in thinking it was another passenger . . . and discovered it was actually Guillermo's pet PARROT.
We have no idea why Guillermo was driving around with a parrot in his car, but it turned out the bird knew what it was talking about. Because Guillermo proceeded to fail a sobriety test, and the cops threw him in JAIL for drunk driving.
Although they were nice enough to let the bird STAY with him in jail for the night.
Animal control officials said they were legitimately worried the bird might DIE if the two were separated, explaining that the two have a very unique bond. (UPI / NY Daily News / El Universal)
