A Kentucky man was charged today with driving under the influence on a horse. Yes, a horse. Not unlike the man who got a DUI on a Walmart scooter a little while back, we learned yet another lesson in drinking safety.
Danny Reynolds was riding his horse on a rural road near Nicholasville, Kentucky when he was pulled over by cops after what we assume must have been some serious swerving. This brings up a much more serious question, how does one swerve while riding a horse? What are some things they teach you at cop academy to tell if someone is riding a horse drunk?
Anyways, he blew double the legal limit and the cops found moonshine and marijuana on him. He said he was coming home from celebrating his son’s birthday party. Must have been some fucking party. The best my parents ever got me was a cheap bottle of champagne and disappointment. Reynolds was charged with operating a non-motor vehicle under the influence, possession of marijuana and drug possession.
We can thank the regional news channel 5 for their excellent coverage of this event. What is even more interesting is that at the bottom of the story they cite a similar case that happened in Tennessee where a woman was arrested while riding a horse during her town’s Christmas parade. I guess everything is just more interesting in the middle of the country.
Feel free to hit me up in the comments or on Twitter if you know someone who has been arrested for a DUI while on objects other than cars. I would love to hear your story.
