Culpeper, VA.

Police officers Lonnie Myers and Tim Chilton heard a disturbance last Thursday around midnight and found Culpeper residents Eric Kyff and Lauren Allen arguing, Sgt. Scott Jenkins said.

Kyff and Allen, who appeared to be intoxicated, wanted to "travel home several miles by horseback to avoid drinking and driving," Jenkins said.

Kyff, 39, took off along a nearby set of railroad tracks but was stopped shortly after by Chilton, police said.

The two were charged with public intoxication and taken to the county jail. The horses were held across the street in front of the police department.

The two were released from jail detox the next morning. Their horses were waiting for them across the road.
