Well, we at Twitchy certainly got a kick out of that photo of New Hampshire Democrat Sen. Jeanne Shaheen being stalked by a giant chicken for reportedly being too cowardly to participate in town hall meetings. Here it is again:

More such photos might be out of the question, as WMUR reports that the man in the chicken suit has been arrested for disorderly conduct.

A 23-year-old state Republican Party staffer tasked with wearing a chicken suit and clucking at Democratic office holders was arrested during a small town parade on Saturday.

The staffer, Michael Zona, of Manchester, was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct. Londonderry Detective Christopher Olson said Zona was wearing a chicken outfit and was harassing U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen and Gov. Maggie Hassan along the parade route during that town’s old home day celebrations.

According to Olsen, Zona was told several times to “cease and desist his activities” around the office-holders, but he did it several more times, while flapping his chicken suit wings. He was taken into custody after officers saw him yelling at Shaheen and Hassan.

Anti-chicken bias by the police?
