A drunk driver who had 100 chickens crammed inside his car has been jailed and banned from driving for 15 years.
Luis Motola-Placio was stopped by the police in Nebraska, in January – who had pulled him over for driving with no headlights on.
Shocked officers found that not only was the 36-year-old behind the wheel while he was drunk, but that he also had 100 chickens in a makeshift cage in the back of his car.
Unbelievably only 58 of the 100 chickens were alive, with the other 42 having been crushed by the weight of the other feathered birds on top of them.
The surviving animals were taken taken to the Central Nebraska Humane Society.
He was convicted of drink driving and livestock neglect then handed a 180 day jail sentence, fined $1,000 and will be unable to drive for 15 years.
