BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — University of Colorado police have arrested a man suspected of going on a drunken horseback ride through the city of Boulder.

Police spokesman Ryan Huff tells The Daily Camera (http://bit.ly/18K6Yvs ) that witnesses saw the rider and horse occasionally wandering into traffic near the school Monday afternoon. Police pulled over the rider and gave him a sobriety test, and he was arrested on suspicion of riding under the influence.

The man's name hasn't been released. Police say he had a small dog in his backpack and beer in one of his saddlebags.

The horse and the dog have been impounded.
