Over the years I've read stories about people arrested for DUI while driving

1) A tractor
2) A riding mower
3) A golf cart
4) A pair of roller skates
5) A motorized wheelchair
6) A dog sled
7) A horse

The only verdict I read was the last one.  He got off, the judge said the horse
knew the way home and wasn't likely to run anyone over.
