Some crimes just make you shake your head in disbelief in wonder of how a human being even gets in such a position. Take the bizarre example of Luis Motola-Palacio in Nebraska, who was recently sentenced to 180 days in the slammer for driving drunk with 100 chickens in the back of his SUV. He also received a $1,000 fine and lost his driver's license for the next 15 years.

According to locals news station 10 11 Central Nebraska, police first spotted Motola-Palacio on January 31 driving without his headlights and pulled him over. They found the poor birds, many of which were already dead, in the back of his vehicle. Officers took the 58 surviving chickens to the local humane society for care (pictured above). They were in pretty poor shape with missing feathers and exposed bones in some cases, but since then, several homes have adopted the mistreated animals.

Motola-Palacio was charged with aggravated DUI, driving during suspension and cruelty to livestock. Scroll down to watch a video about the case. Warning, it does contain images of the abused chickens at the humane society.

      Really, are you serous? As if drunk driving wasn't bad enough you just had to bring 100 chickens with you. What the hell. I like fried chicken but damn.

      How did President Hoover's campaign slogan go...

      "A chicken in every pot and a car in every garage" or "Chickens in every car and beer in every garage"?

      What kind of car was it? and how on earth did he get them in there?

        Well he loaded one in, then another, then another until he got to 100, I'd guess.

      Guy should have been in a Toyota Highlander - it's got a bin for your chicken.

      all the reporters and interviews on this clips were awful and should all be ashamed of themselves. 
      Slow news day and slow news readers. Hope all the chickens end up fried in Kentucky.
