Police: Drunken woman rides horse to rob Alabama store

Police say a drunken woman rode a horse to rob a store.

Deputies responded to a call from a shop in DeKalb County, Alabama, on July 5.

Authorities say 45-year-old Christine Saunders of Fyffe, Ala., had items from the store on her.

Outside the store she had apparently tied up a horse she was riding. Officers recovered three cans of beer from a Walmart bag tied to the saddle.

The horse was later returned to the owner who didn’t want to press charges.

Saunders was arrested and charged with public intoxication.
