Drunk On Horse

Recently a cowboy decided to visit his local strip mall while riding his horse while drunk, according to The Denver Post.

ARVADA, Colo.—A man in a cowboy hat who rode a horse through a Denver suburb has been cited for riding an animal under the influence.Police say Brian Drone was given a $25 traffic violation ticket in a strip mall parking lot Friday.

Drone told KUSA-TV that he was out for a “joyride” in Arvada with his horse, Cricket.

Sgt. Jeff Monzingo says the citation was the first he’d seen in 15 years of working in law enforcement.

Police say deciding what to do with the horse was a “tricky call” because “you can tow a car” in typical drunk driving cases.

A stable owner eventually offered Drone and his horse a ride home.

A phone number listed for a Brian Drone in Arvada was disconnected.

There are all sorts of laws prohibiting a moving vehicle while under the influence (bike, boat, and of course car)  but I guess horses had fallen by the wayside by the time the UI laws were written.  My Father lived in Key West and we would spend part of the year there. They were quite strict on their drunk on bike laws (BUI). He would always give us the talk, “If you are too drunk to ride home, walk. If you do ride tell them you’re from out of town, and you don’t know me.” Yeah like we would ruin his reputation or something. After all he was known as “Acid Head Ed”.  Anyway, we could have been arrested in many places for just being drunk in public, including Bourbon Street. Yup crazy but true.

Note to self, if in Colorado and I need a ride home after partying either:

a.) Call a cab

b.) Ride a horse

Let’s face it, when you’re trashed the horse just seems like the better option.

reminds me of the city that wanted to add mopeds to the list of vehicles. Since you don’t need a license ot ride a moped, this drunk who lost his license started driving that thing and kept getting arrested but they couldn’t take his moped away.

That’s pretty funny and sad.

I was just saying to myself, “You know, I’m in the mood to read about a drunk cowboy riding a horse. But where do I go to find that?’

Thanks for answering my call!
