GRAND ISLAND , Neb., Aug. 1 (UPI) -- A Nebraska man will spend 180 days behind bars after he was convicted of drunken driving with more than 100 chickens in his SUV.

When Luis Motola-Palacio was pulled over for driving without his headlights, an officer discovered that he had live birds and dozens of chicken carcasses in his vehicle.

The chickens were being held in a cage in the rear of the SUV.

Motola-Palacio was convicted of cruelty to livestock as well as drunken driving.

In addition to the jail time, Motola-Palacio was also ordered not to drive for 15 years and fined $100, the Grand Island Independent reported.

The 36-year-old had a previous run-in with the law when he allegedly blasted a man with a shotgun after an argument broke out while they were slaughtering hogs.

The chickens that were still alive were brought to two farms.
