A police chase in Whittier on Saturday went a little slower than usual: The drunken suspect galloped through town on a horse.
The “driver” initially refused to stop, leading to the unusual pursuit.
“It was our afternoon,” the Whittier police posted on their official Instagram account.
The chase ended with the DUI suspect in custody and the horse getting lots of love from the police. The horse was taken into the department’s custody after the incident.
It turns out that almost all the usual rules of the road apply when you’re on city streets, even if your ride is a horse.
