MANCHESTER, Conn. -- Usually, people ask why did the chicken cross the road? On Thursday, someone crossed the road to rob a chicken. Boston Market was celebrating a grand re-opening when someone robbed a man in a chicken suit of his American flag.
"Yeah, there was definitely foul play, definitely foul play. But all is well," said Eric Dido who dressed as a chicken.
Dido hoped to entice customers to come into the restaurant when someone came up to him and took his flag.
"I was just standing there, and a guy a couple of lanes over in traffic, he decides to run out of his car, he was a passenger," Dido said
Even though the restaurant called the police, the suspect flew the coup.
Dido says the incident didn't scare him.
"It was a harmless prank, it's completely hilarious," he said. "I take it in good fun."
