    :laugh: No fowl play suspected when $54 citation dismissed!
    RIDGECREST, California (AP) -- A chicken that got a ticket for crossing the road has clawed his way out of it.

    The $54 citation for impeding traffic was dismissed Friday after Linc and Helena Moore's attorney argued that the fowl was domesticated and could not be charged as livestock.

    I can't believe we tie up our courts with this type of thing. No wonder so many cities find themselves having budget problems.
