A 53-year-old Florida woman was arrested and charged with a DUI, though she wasn't really driving, but rather drunk riding a horse down a road.
Breath samples showed that her blood alcohol level was that of .161. Florida's legal limit is .08.
According to NBC News:
"Ms. Byrne was obviously not in any condition to be on the road," Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said in a news release. "She not only put herself and the horse in danger, but also anyone who was driving on the road, which is typically very busy."
Byrne was charged with DUI and animal neglect for endangering and failing to provide proper protection for the horse.
This isn't Byrne's first arrest. She's had 5 felony and 10 misdemeanor charges, including charges for drug possession and animal cruelty. And yet, even with a history of animal cruelty, she somehow still has a horse to drunk drive.
