Dudes ride horseback to avoid DUI, end up arrested anyways.

Two people police say were hoping to avoid drinking and driving chose instead to head home on horseback, and ended up under arrest anyway.

Police officers Lonnie Myers and Tim Chilton heard a disturbance last Thursday around midnight and found Culpeper residents Eric Kyff and Lauren Allen arguing, Sgt. Scott Jenkins said.

Kyff and Allen, who appeared to be intoxicated, wanted to "travel home several miles by horseback to avoid drinking and driving," Jenkins said.
The two were charged with public intoxication and taken to the county jail. The horses were held across the street in front of the police department. The two were released from jail the next morning. Their horses were waiting for them across the road. » Article here
