Woman charged with DUI while riding a horse

By Guest Attorney

A Georgia woman was charged with DUI after she steered her horse onto a highway and tangled with a car. The rider was hospitalized and the driver and passengers of the Pontiac Bonneville involved were treated and released.
A State trooper justified charging the rider, but not the horse, with DUI, stating: “If it’s on the public right-of-way, you’re under the same jurisdiction as if you’re in a car.”
