Cowboy UP! A man, no two men in Austin, Texas was arrested on a recent Friday night for OWI or should I say operating a horse and a mule while under the influence. Is nothing sacred? What about John Wayne and all those bar room brawls and gun fights in the street. How do you think men got their nerve up to actually have a gun fight? "Okay, offissserrr make me day!"

When asked for comment, the horse and mule took the fifth.

Austin Texas: DWI Arrest for Men on Horse and Mule

Two men were arrested for DWI in Austin, Texas. Obviously these happen every day, but it's not often that the people who get arrested were "driving" a horse and a mule.

Did you have any idea that it was illegal to drink and "drive" a four legged creature? It seems that Jose Rios and Olivio were not aware of this fact. They parked a horse trailer near I-35 in Austin, Texas last Friday night, and they decided to take off down 6th street on their horse and mule.

While they were enjoying their drunken ride down the city street, they also invited others who were out and about to take pictures with them and their animals. Police were not amused by this little stunt. They pulled the two men over, and Rios was so drunk that he couldn't even complete the sobriety test.

According to authorities, "It is legal to ride a horse on a public street ...just not while you're intoxicated." Unfortunately for the two men, they weren't aware, so they ended up being arrested for DWI on a horse and a mule. At least you know now, so you won't even make this mistake.
