Kentucky Man, 40, Arrested For Drunk Driving (He Was Riding A Horse At The Time)

A Kentucky man is facing criminal charges for allegedly drunkenly “driving” a horse.

According to the Kentucky State Police, troopers received a call Tuesday reporting that an intoxicated man was riding a horse in the town of Betsy Layne (pop. 688).

Investigators subsequently made contact with suspect Michael Kimmel, but he fled on foot (apparently leaving behind his four-legged ride).  Kimmel, 40, was eventually corralled and charged with DUI and fleeing or evading police.

Seen above, Kimmel posed for his booking photo through a plexiglass window (though it is still a better image than a prior mug shot).

Kimmel, who has used the alias “Mike Bicycle,” is currently on probation for burglary. He is locked up in the Floyd County jail on $5000 cash bond.
