The police department in Waynesboro, Virginia, is conducting an investigation into a car crash that critically injured one man. The two-car crash was allegedly caused by a 21-year-old man who has since been charged with DUI by authorities. Police say that the charges will likely be upgraded upon the completion of their investigation.
Just the same as any other part of the state, there are car accidents in and around Virginia Beach on a regular basis. While some of these incidents are minor fender benders, others result in serious injury or even death.
A parrot riding in a car with its owner alerted police at a DUI checkpoint that the man in the car may have been drunk, repeatedly yelling “he’s drunk” when the man rolled down the window. At first police were confused and thought that there was a passenger in the car, but soon discovered that it was a parrot speaking. It is not clear how the parrot got that phrase to repeat, but upon further investigation police found that the man could not pass a field sobriety test and was likely intoxicated. He was arrested and taken to a local jail, along with his pet parrot, to sober up before being released.
