A 56-year-old German horse lover was caught on Sunday night after recklessly galloping through Much in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia, police said Monday.

Concerned residents called police as the man rode through the streets, falling from his horse several times, Siegburg police said Monday. When police finally caught up with the increasingly aggressive man they had difficulty persuading him to dismount.

Police decided to lift the man from his saddle and asked him to take an alcohol test.
