Jerald Reiter was drunk Sunday night, got into his truck after leaving a bar and was arrested for OWI. His blood alcohol level was .14, oh yes, and he had a zebra and parrot in the front of the truck with him
Yes, Reiter and his girlfriend own both as pets and like to take them out in public for others to see and pet. Sunday night Reiter decided to take the pair to the bar where he claims they have been allowed in before. On this night he was told that food was being served and had to leave them in the truck. In the parking lot others saw the animals and gathered to take pictures and gawk at the odd site. It seems that someone from that group called police. It was about the time they arrived that Reiter was driving off, and was arrested.
The bar told police and local media that they have never allowed the animals into the establishment. Oh, the bar’s name? “The Doghouse Lounge”.
