Rooster Delivery Leads To Probation Violation For Previous Cockfighting Offender

BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. (CBS Tampa) – A local resident violated the conditions of his probation Thursday afternoon when he went to pick up a mysterious package.

The delivery? A live rooster.

Danny Pham, 36 of Lake Worth, is restricted from owning animals as part of his punishment for previous involvement in cockfighting matches held for gambling purposes.

According to an arrest affidavit provided to CBS Tampa by the Boynton Beach Police Department, authorities were alerted to Pham’s Dec. 29 delivery pick-up by Liz Roehrich of Boynton Beach Animal Control.

“Shortly after (Pham arrived) a postal employee walked out on to the dock and handed (Pham) a white, square-shaped box with holes. (The) top of the box was taped ‘live animal,'” the documents state.

They add that he gently placed the box beside him and signed a USPS document.

Pham then started toward the car with the box, but was intercepted by police before he arrived at it.

When questioned about the package, Pham reportedly told authorities that he was picking up the rooster for a friend, but when asked to supply a name or contact information for this person, he declined.

After ensuring that Pham understood his rights, despite allegedly speaking and understanding only “30 percent English” according to the affidavit, he was arrested and charged with one count of probation violation.

Once processed, Pham was taken to the Palm Beach County Jail without further incident.
