Woman Charged With DUI On Horse!

You do not usually see a woman arrested for driving under the effect of alcohol but what happened in Polk County highway was really unusual.

A 53-year-old woman riding a horse was arrested for riding drunk. Someone had called 911 and informed them that a woman riding a horse appeared confused and possibly in danger and when the police arrived they found Donna Byrne riding her horse on the road. Seeing the woman the police did a sobriety test and she registered blood alcohol level of 1.61, far from Florida’s legal limit of 0.8. Byrne is now charged DUI and animal neglect for endangering and failing to provide proper protection for the horse and for the people on the road and is now facing the law. The horse was taken to the Polk County Sheriff’s Animal Control livestock facility by the police but Byrne was taken to the Polk County jail and is facing the consequences of her own reckless actions.
