Stupid Poultry-Related Charge of the Week

by TChris

Make your own joke.

A chicken that got a ticket for crossing the road has clawed his way out of it. The $54 citation for impeding traffic was dismissed Friday after Linc and Helena Moore's attorney argued that the fowl was domesticated and could not be charged as livestock.

An excellent defense, it turns out.

The chicken was ticketed March 26 for impeding traffic after it wandered onto a road in Johannesburg, a rural mining community southeast of Ridgecrest.

    What has the world come to when even trying to get to the other side is a crime?
