After a few drinks, Charles Cowart decided to relieve himself in public. Police were called, and Cowart fled — galloping through a Florida town. Cowart's mounted escape ended when back-up arrived: His dad. His father knocked him off the horse, and police took him into custody.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene. After a few drinks, Charles Cowart decided to relieve himself in public.

His father knocked him off the horse and police took him into custody. You're listening to MORNING EDITION.
