The parrot, which Luis Santana does not own, then bit the police officer on the finger as Santana ran away from police
A Connecticut man who allegedly threw a parrot at police is facing animal cruelty and other charges.
According to reports Luis Santana, 32, was involved in an altercation with another man earlier this week when Waterbury Police Department officers arrived on the scene.
As police tried to break up the fight, Santana, who was shirtless and holding a white parrot, launched the bird at an officer.
The parrot, which Santana does not own, then bit the police officer on the finger as Santana fled the scene. He was later found in a nearby house and placed under arrest.
Mr Santana, who lives in a homeless shelter, now faces numerous charges including second-degree burglary, assaulting a police officer, disorderly conduct and cruelty to animals.
He is due in court on Nov. 18, NBC Connecticut reported.
According to the Waterbury Republican-American the parrot was returned to its owner the next day.
