Police: Woman rode drunk on stolen horse
Authorities in South Carolina said a woman was ticketed for disorderly conduct for allegedly riding drunkenly down the middle of a town on a stolen horse.
The Pickens County Sheriff's Office said a pedestrian flagged down an officer Saturday to report a woman riding a horse down Main Street in Six Mile and the woman
was barely able to stay on, the Greenville (S.C.) News reported Wednesday.
The woman initially told the officer
she wasn't drunk, the horse was, the report said, but eventually confessed she had consumed a six-pack of beer before mounting the horse.
The owner of the horse, who said the animal was taken without consent, declined to press charges once the horse was returned.
