Woman Charged After Riding Horse To Bottle Shop

We've all been told not to drink and drive, but what about trotting down to the bottle shop for a round of bevvies?

A 51-year-old woman has been charged after allegedly riding a horse to a Logan bottle shop while more than four times the legal alcohol limit on Monday night.

Queensland Police officers were called to a tavern on Wembley Road around 11.30pm after a woman refused to leave the premises.

Police say the woman allegedly rode the horse through the drive through section of the tavern and appeared heavily intoxicated.

The human was arrested and taken to Logan Central Police Station where she allegedly blew a blood alcohol reading of 0.226 per cent. She is due to appear in the Beenleigh Magistrates Court on June 26, charged with being in charge of a horse whilst under the influence of liquor.

Officers walked the horse back to the police station before council workers walked it all the way home to a Marsden address.

"Police want to remind the public that drink driving does not just mean a vehicle, it can include a horse," they said in a statement.
