Drunk man on horseback leads police on low-speed chase9/26/2012
Not only are police charging merry men on horseback with DUI, they've now been reduced to silent, low speed chases of the equine variety. According to police, they were responding to a report about "an intoxicated male riding a horse" in Bunnell, Fla. when they found Charles Larkin Cowart, 29, on his steed. He refused to dismount but "in an aggressive manner reared the horse back" and took off. Police didn't use their sirens so as not to scare his ride during their pursuit. Half an hour later, his horse exhausted, Cowart made a run for it but was caught shortly after. Police say the horse is back with his family and is fine. Cowart's charges include resisting arrest without violence and cruelty to animals. [Source]
