A Mexican motorist was busted drunken driving after his pet parakeet ratted him out to police.
Guillermo Reyes, 49, was pulled over by traffic officers at a routine alcohol checkpoint in Mexico City last week.

El Universal reports that Reyes was indeed found to be drunk and was subsequently arrested
Animal Surveillance Brigade officers were called to take the mouthy critter away.
