Jake Williams allegedly drove his truck and horse trailer to a daiquiri shop in Denham Springs and opted to ride the horse, Sugar, back home instead of driving, according to police.

Police stopped him and he was issued a summons for disturbing the peace by intoxication. The Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office said riding a horse does not qualify the man for a DWI.

But Williams told WBRZ-TV that he felt riding the horse was a good idea: "When you get a little too much to drink, why not ride a horse? It's safer that way. The horse knows the way home."
