The incident reportedly occurred in a McDonald's in Fairfax, Virginia, on August 22, but Rios was not arrested until nearly three months later.

The police allege that during the robbery, Rios wore two parrots on the brim of his cowboy hat and a third on his shoulder. Following the crime, he was caught on CCTV in a nearby convenience store still with the three parrots.

Rios is currently being held without bail and is facing charges of robbery.
