Man accused of drunken horse riding in snowstorm

CODY, Wyo. (AP) - A man has been cited for public intoxication
while riding a white horse during a snowstorm in the northern
Wyoming town of Cody.
Police say they cited 28-year-old Benjamin Daniels after they
received a call Sunday afternoon from a motorist concerned that a
man was creating a road hazard by riding his horse on a street in
conditions with poor visibility.
Cody Assistant Police Chief George Menig says officers noticed
Daniels was intoxicated after they stopped him to explain that
drivers were having difficulty spotting his slow-moving white
horse.
Menig said Thursday that Daniels was detained Sunday and
released the following day. He will go before a municipal judge
later.
A friend of Daniels picked up the horse.
There was no telephone listing for Daniels.
