Meanwhile, in Colorado, Man on Horseback Jailed For Riding Drunk
Usually when you hear about a man and horse, you expect this, but a funny thing happened on Patrick Schumacher's trip to his brother's wedding. He was arrested in Boulder, Colorado today after police witnessed him horse wandering into traffic. According to police, Patrick was slumped to his right side as he crossed streets and forced pedestrians off the sidewalk. It gets better. Police say Patrick had a small dog in his backpack and beer in one of his saddlebags. He told officers he lost his license so he was riding his horse from Bryce, Utah (a 600-mile journey by car) to attend his brother's wedding. He was arrested and charged with riding a horse while under the influence of alcohol, animal cruelty charge, prohibited use of weapons and a reckless endangerment charge. The horse and the dog were impounded.
