Security screeners at a Honolulu courthouse noticed something moving inside a defendant’s bag as it passed through an X-ray machine.
After initially refusing to open it, the bag’s owner reluctantly revealed that his pet duck was inside the bag, along with a bottle of beer.
Deputies told Michael Hubbard that his pet and beverage wouldn’t be allowed inside Circuit Court, so he left. He returned a short while later and asked that deputies look after his belongings while he went inside for an appointment.
Hubbard went to his appointment, while the duck waited outside.
