Mike’s the Stupid News: Man Arrested for DUI with Zebra and Parrot In Front Seat

A man, a zebra, and a parrot walk into a bar. It sounds like the beginning of a joke, but it actually happened Sunday night in Cascade, Iowa. 55-year-old Jerald Reiter loaded his pet zebra and parrot into the front seat of his car, and took them to a bar so the three of them could drink and hang out. But when he got there, the bar owner told Jerald his zebra wasn’t welcome inside, so Jerald left the animals in the car and got drunk alone.

After he’d properly lubricated himself, he went outside to head home and found a group of people had gathered around his truck to take photos of the zebra and the parrot. Because, well, that’s not the kind of thing one sees every day. In fact, here’s a photo of the animals in the truck that someone took in the parking lot and posted on Facebook …


As he started to drive out of the parking lot, Reiter was pulled over for drunk driving. He told the cops he was aware he’d had too much to drink and was about let a passenger take the wheel when the police arrived. No word on if he meant the zebra or the parrot. Here’s Jerald’s mug shot. He looks like a guy who’d take a zebra drinking, no?
