A 45-year-old Colorado Springs man is facing charges of drunken horseback riding, animal cruelty and the prohibited use of weapons after University of Colorado police on Monday interrupted what he claimed was a 600-mile journey from Larkspur to Bryce, Utah, to attend a wedding.
Police began receiving calls about Patrick Neal Schumacher's unusual journey around 2:14 p.m., according to CU police spokesman Ryan Huff.
Police said the man struck the horse hard enough that it reared up on its hind legs.
According to a campus police, Schumacher was slumped over to the right and forcing people off the sidewalks. Officers asked him to dismount and gave him a roadside sobriety test, which Schumacher failed, police said.
Schumacher also had a dog -- a pug named Bufford -- in a backpack, and officers found a small black powder pistol and beer in one of his saddlebags.

wtfgodot strikes again! Ahahah pug.
Where do you -find- these?
I'm beginning to suspect this is actually you, doing bizarre things to make the news just so you can link it here. =P
(of course you'd never be cruel to animals - clearly you've employed an equine actor - and a stunt pug.)_____________

That poor little pug.
Everyone knows that you don't put your pugs in backpacks! You wear doggy bjorns.
