Two men charged with driving while intoxicated had their charges dropped after police arrested them for riding a horse and donkey down a crowded street in downtown Austin.

The two were coaxing passers-by to take pictures and pet their horse and mule. Police said the two were impeding traffic and could have caused an accident.

Officers conducted a field sobriety test on the two and then charged them with driving while intoxicated.

Those charges were later dropped for both Mr Rios and Mr Olvio because the legal definition of a motor vehicle in relation to DUI charges is too vague, but Mr Rios was charged with public intoxication.

Yee. Haw.
