    Exclamation A case of one horse's ass leading another

    Woman gets DUI — for horseback ride
    Alabama resident allegedly used animal to ram a police car at midnight
    The Associated Press
    Updated: 9:21 p.m. ET April 4, 2007
    SYLVANIA, Ala. - A woman who went for a horseback ride through town at midnight and allegedly used the horse to ram a police car was charged with driving under the influence and drug offenses, police said Tuesday.

    "Cars were passing by having to avoid it, and almost hitting the horse," said Police Chief Brad Gregg.

    He said DUI charges can apply even when the vehicle has four legs instead of wheels.

    Police in the northeast Alabama town received a call around midnight Saturday about someone riding a horse on a city street, Gregg said.

    Officer John Seals found Melissa Byrum York, 40, of Henagar, on horseback on a nearby road and attempted to stop her. Seals asked the woman repeatedly to get off the horse, but she kept trying to kick the animal to make it run, the chief said.

    "She wouldn't stop. She kept riding the horse and going on," Gregg said.

    After ramming the police car with the horse and riding away, the woman tried to jump off but caught her foot in a stirrup, Gregg said. The officer took the woman into custody and discovered that she had crystal methamphetamine, a small amount of marijuana, pills and a small pipe, the chief said.

    Horse not 'in the best of health'
    York was charged with DUI for allegedly riding the horse under the influence of a controlled substance. She was also charged with drug possession, possession of drug paraphernalia, resisting arrest, assault, attempting to elude police and cruelty to animals.


    Gregg said the horse, which belonged to York, "wasn't in the best of health, but it's still alive."

    York was released from the DeKalb County Jail on $4,000 bond and was being transferred to the jail in Jackson County, where authorities had a warrant for her arrest on unrelated charges, Gregg said.

    Jackson County officials said Tuesday that York had yet to be booked, and there were no records indicating whether she had a lawyer.

    I will be interested to see if the DUI charge sticks. Im sure the drug charges or in the least the assault charges will stick.

    Can't fix stupid.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.
    In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.
