Police ordered Santana to spot and he responded by throwing a parrot

Well, give a nonsensical order, get a parrot in your face. Seems fair.


#3

C’mon throwing an angry (at least feisty) bird at a civil servant that is often compared to a certain bacon producing critter – Angry Birds IRL.


#4

YOU. SPOT RIGHT THERE.

wtf “body is invalid” message


#5

Capped teeth and a fair amount of makeup would give that man a career as a Barack Obama impersonator.


#6

Do we know at what distance the parrot was thrown? Seems like it would be an easy dodge unless it was done at point blank range or something.


#7

This is like a Victor Hugo novel.


#8

My first question was: is the parrot dead?


#9

At least he didn’t flip them the bird.


#10

Well, if it had been nailed to a stick when it was thrown he would probably have been charged with battery rather than assault.


#11

Not so much dead as resting.


#12

Nah, the Norwegian Blue just stuns easily.


#13

@timquinn it was almost dead.

@earnestinebrown This dude better be prepared to do 19 years, then.


#15

Just before the incident the cop said: “You are under arrest. There is no way you are going to be able to talk your way out of this.”


#16

The Waterbury P.D. showed marvelous restraint. In some jurisdictions, the bird would have been maced, beaten into submission, then charged as an accomplice.


#17

When I read he had hit a cop in the finger, I figured they shot him for it.


#18

He’s pining for the fjords.


#19

Ah, but once launched parrots are self-propelled and guided by avian intelligence.
