Police in Southern California detain a horseback rider suspected of DUI for galloping while intoxicated

A suspected inebriated person riding through traffic on a horse in southern California refused to stop for police, and after a brief pursuit, was apprehended.
On its Instagram feed, the Whittier Police Department made a post about the peculiar case.

The post with three photographs attached says, “At the conclusion, a suspect was taken into custody and the horse was transported to our station, where it received loads of affection from our crew.”

According to KTLA, the unidentified rider is anticipated to face charges of DUI.

In accordance with the California Vehicle Code, individuals riding an animal on public roads are “subject to all of the obligations applicable to the driver of a vehicle… except those rules which by their very nature can have no application.” Thus, whether riding a horse or operating a vehicle, the legal blood alcohol limit (BAC) would be 0.08%, according to the study.
