HUDSON, Fla. (AP) -- A Florida deputy was caught on video politely pursuing a four-legged suspect on a busy road.

Pasco County Sheriff's Cpl. Art Madden spotted a chestnut and white horse galloping in and out of traffic on a road north of Tampa. Rolling down his law enforcement vehicle's window, he asked the animal to "please stop."

According to authorities, Madden was able to herd the animal into a nearby housing development, and the mare finally came to a stop. Madden exited his cruiser and approached, only to have her run off again.

The horse eventually stopped a second time, and that's when Madden threw his arms around her neck.

The horse's owner, who had reported the animal missing, arrived and took it away unharmed.
