California Man Arrested For DUI While Riding Horse
LONG BEACH, California - Authorities say a man accused of riding a horse on a freeway in Southern California was arrested for driving under the influence, CBS Los Angeles reports.
The California Highway Patrol says Luis Perez of Placentia had a blood-alcohol level of more than double the legal limit when they allege he took his horse on the 91 Freeway.
Officers say the 29-year-old hoofed it into Bellflower where they arrested him.
Perez, according to police, failed a field sobriety test and was booked into jail.
We get a chuckle out of the interesting situations we encounter from time to time, but one thing the CHP does not do is “horse” around with DUI.— CHP Santa Fe Springs (@CHP_SFS) February 25, 2018
The horse was unharmed and was back with Perez' mother.
Perez was being held in lieu of more than $50,000 bail.
