Kentucky man arrested for drunk riding (he was on horseback at the time)

A Kentucky man is facing criminal charges for allegedly drunkenly “driving” a horse.

According to the Kentucky State Police, troopers received a call Tuesday reporting that an intoxicated man was riding a horse in the town of Betsy Layne (pop. 688).

Investigators subsequently made contact with suspect Michael Kimmel, but he fled on foot (apparently leaving behind his four-legged ride).  Kimmel, 40, was eventually corralled and charged with DUI and fleeing or evading police.
