Wait, what? Officers pull over three men riding one horse
So a sheriff's deputy pulls over three men riding on one horse... You know this story is going to be good, right? Just keep reading.
Officers in New London responded to a report that there were individuals calling for help on an area street at 3:07 a.m. Tuesday. When the deputies arrived, they found three men riding one horse down the street. They also smelled some serious alcohol on the men.
When the officers asked them why in the hell three of them were riding one horse, they said they were originally riding three seperate horses and two of them ran away. Wait, what?
One man said he was bucked off and started screaming for help because he was convinced the horse had injured him. No explanation for the other horseless man.
When asked to identify himself, one of the drunk horse riders gave a false name and birthdate. He later admitted to the deputies once he was on his way to detox that he had lied because he knew there was a warrant out for his arrest and he wanted to attend his brother's wedding. What a winner sibling. You've got to give this guy some credit for lying to cops so he could attend a family event.
Cory Michael Schmitz pleaded guilty Wednesday to giving a false name to an officer. He was sentenced to 90 days in county jail and one year of supervised probation. So much for attending his brother's wedding. At least the family will have a good drunken story to tell.
