A Florida man was arrested after leading police on a drunken chase … on a horse.
Police in Bunnell said they received a call about an apparently intoxicated man on horseback seen riding through town. Police caught up with him on some railroad tracks, where a southbound train had to be stopped.
The man, 29-year-old Charles Cowart, told officers he was headed to his grandmother's house and refused to get off the horse. He galloped off and police chased him for more than a half-hour before he was finally apprehended.
Cowart was charged with resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, aggravated fleeing and eluding, cruelty to animals and interference with a railroad track. (CBS/AP)
A man was so desperate to sneak into Spain he decided to disguise himself as a car seat.
The 20-year-old immigrant from Guinea pulled apart the passenger seat cushioning and slid behind the metal caging while one of his co-smugglers sat on top of him.
While the trio was recognized by police for their creative and innovative efforts, the two Moroccan men were arrested for smuggling and the young immigrant was detained, brought before a judge and then kicked out of the country. (NBC)
A man got so tired while driving that he stopped to get some sleep at someone's house ... unfortunately, he didn't park his car first.
Fred Ciabatoni was watching TV in his bedroom when he was nearly hit by a car that crashed into his home. The driver of the vehicle fell asleep behind the wheel and lost control while going around a dangerous curve.
Fred called 911 right after the crash and urged the driver to stay put. With everything in his bedroom destroyed, Fred is just happy he was watching TV and not sleeping when the crash occurred.
While the drivers name has not been released, it is safe to say he is wide awake now. (WFTV)
