Drunk driving charges have been dismissed against two men who rode a mule and horse in downtown Austin, Texas, while intoxicated during a bustling evening, reports KVUE.
Samuel Olivo Jr., riding a horse named Big Red, and Jose Rios, riding a mule named Mula, were stopped by Austin Police officers, who wrote them DWI tickets that were later dismissed because the city code had been rewritten and doesn't allow drunk-driving infractions involving farm animals.
Police stopped the men and impounded their mounts, after they began blocking traffic and cajoling customers of Sixth Street bars and nightclubs to pose for photos with them.
Watch the KVUE news report that includes dash-cam footage of the arrest:
The men were unable to complete field-sobriety tests and Olivo later admitted, "I was drunk."
The men, who have been charged with public intoxication, told the Austin American-Statesman they plan to ride through downtown again, which is not a violation of a city ordinance. This time, they'll be sober.
