(Newser) – We don’t need to take an official Gallup Poll to know that this probably wasn’t a good idea. A woman in DeKalb County, Ala., was charged with public intoxication and illegal possession of a prohibited beverage, and local cops tell that she a) stole a horse; b) rode the horse while intoxicated to a local store; and c) tried to steal unspecified items from said store.

Sheriff Jimmy Harris said when authorities responded to a call from the store Saturday evening, they found a drunken 45-year-old Christine Saunders with the items she allegedly stole on her person—except for the horse, reports Waay TV, which was tied up outside. A Walmart bag hanging from the saddle horn contained three cans of Keystone Light. The horse’s owner declined to press charges, though the sheriff says that more charges against Saunders may be filed by the store owner.
