Two Law Students Arrested For Beheading Bird At Las Vegas Casino
Birdbrains Face Jail Time
Las Vegas may be sin city, but that doesn't mean you can get away with fowl crimes. Two idiots from California were arrested at the Flamingo Resort last weekend after authorities say they chased down an exotic bird, beheaded it, and then played with its dead body.
Eric Cuellar and Justin Teixeira, both 24, were taken into custody following an incident at the Las Vegas hotel-casino in which a surveillance tape caught them brutalizing a rare bird in the casino's Wildlife Habitat.
The video shows the men, who are both law students at the University of California, Berkeley, chasing a helmeted guineafowl into some trees and then emerging with its lifeless, headless body.
Police say the men can then be seen laughing and throwing the 14-year-old bird around.
Cuellar and Teixeira were arrested and charged with suspicion of conspiracy and willful and malicious torure or killing of wildlife. Considering Nevada's tough animal protection laws, the pair could find themselves serving considerable jail time.
To which we say, GOOD! Way to throw away your law careers doufuses.
