Only in Wyoming: Cody Cops Bust Drunk Guy Riding a Horse
This week marks the seventh anniversary of a quintessential "only in Wyoming" moment.
December 27, 2009, a man in Cody, Wyoming, was arrested for riding a horse while intoxicated.
Cody Police had recieved a call from a motorist who was worried that the white horse might present a safety hazard during a snowstorm.
After police stopped Bejamin Daniels to explain that his horse may be difficult for drivers to see, they noticed he was intoxicated.
Daniels was taken to jail and charged with public drunkeness. Meanwhile, a friend was called to come pick up the horse.
Curiously enough, the drunk man on horseback was not cited for Driving Under the Influence. Wyoming law does not consider a horse to be a motor vehicle.
