Surprised the parrot didn't end up riddled with bullets.

If Smoking Gun doesn't pick up this mugshot, they're missing the boat...

Now he's just left with a non-talking slug.

Any article that starts with "A local man armed with a parrot...." has got to be good for laughs

Wait wait wait.  There are attack parrots?

It was pining for the fjords!

it's funnier that it actually worked! the parrot bit the guy he threw it at.

Was the parrot's name David?

Also, I was guessing it was going to be more like this.

When officers arrived, they spotted Luis Santana, 32, and the bird, and began chasing Santana. He turned and threw the bird at the officer, police said.

when you're just hanging out with your bird and officers arrive and start chasing you, just what the fark else are you supposed to do?

It had been a birdbrain plan from the start. Now here he was, flying the coop with the cops hot on his tailfeathers.

Caught behavian badly, he didn't stand a chance of beaking the rap. Nobody to alibi him; he'd ruffled too many feathers.

He'd been a jailbird before and couldn't stand another stint in the cage. With no time to plan, he'd have to wing his escape; someone had crowed to the cops and he had to fly without so much as an overcote. But he wasn't going down easy; no sir, they'd have to do more than just wing him.

Because he always carried grandpappy's Civil War Parrot Gun.

This is why I always carry a live alligator to throw at the police; parrots are undependable weapons.

You know, the finger...

Does 'fart in their general direction' equal a chemical attack on a cop?
 
2013-10-17 11:38:55 PM  
Did either mend his evil ways?
 
2013-10-17 11:40:24 PM  
And that's the name of that tune. Excuse me while I practice mincing.

When Officer Gary Kichar raised his hand to shield himself, the bird chomped down on his finger, police said. Kichar was treated at the scene.

I think I speak for every Connecticut resident who's ever been to Waterbury when I say..

The police in that town are the biggest assholes you'll ever meet.  It's also the same town that gave us this wonderful human being..http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philip_Giordano .  Seriously, fark Waterbury and everybody in it.

He and the former owner of the Trashers are fine reps for the state of CT - we're not gonna let NJ keep stealing all the press!!

Hmm, technically, didn't the parrot assault the cop, not the guy?

That was my first thought too.
