Vienna Police: Political gathering interrupted by chicken-man

It’s unclear what he was protesting, it’s unclear why he was protesting, but Vienna has an angry chicken-man.

According to last week’s Vienna Police Highlights, on May 2 around noon, there was a trespassing call for a man harassing customers at Clarity, an American-dining restaurant at 442 Maple Ave E.

Officers responded to the report of a man dressed in a chicken costume harassing customers at the restaurant. Members of a political party were having a private gathering at the restaurant. The man dressed as a chicken was with an opposing political party. The manager of the restaurant trespassed the man from the property. The man moved to the sidewalk in the public right of way to continue his protest.

The police report does not specify the exact nature of the political disagreement, but it clearly ruffled some feathers.
