HONOLULU, April 10 (UPI) -- Authorities in Honolulu said they confiscated two bottles of beer and a live duck from a man entering a courthouse to meet with his probation officer.

A courthouse security worker said the man, whose name was not released, appeared to be intoxicated when he arrived at the courthouse at 8:30 a.m. Monday and an X-ray of the bag he was carrying revealed two 40-ounce bottles of beer, the Courthouse News Service reported Wednesday.

The man refused to hand over the bag, saying there was a "live animal" inside, and officers took the bag from him and discovered a live duck inside.

The man was arrested.
