Man smashed shop window to steal bird costume before wearing it to bar down the road

A man used a brick to shatter the window of a costume shop, took a bird costume and wore it to a bar down the street in Kansas City's Crossroads District on Thursday night, Kansas City police said.

Patrons at the Cashew bar where the man was spotted wearing the bird costume, said the man struggled with police as he was taken into custody. "It was just bizarre," one bar patron visiting Kansas City from Canada said.

"We came in and there was a guy sitting at the bar, and he was in a really weird bird feather costume, and we didn't think too much of it, he was really quiet.

"And the next thing we know, five cops show up and they go to arrest him, they handcuff him, he fights them a little bit, and they just drag him out and take him away." The man was placed in an ambulance and checked out before being taken away. Police placed the costume back inside the costume shop as they left the scene.
