'Cowboys' Take Horses Into A Supermarket - Later Get Tasered, Arrested (Video)

Posted: Updated:

Below there's a very pleasant video of a group of horse riders taking their steeds into a supermarket's coffee shop in the town of Steamboat Springs, Colorado.

Recorded by a Starbuck's employee on Sunday night, it features quite a few "I'm sure this is a healthcode violation"-style tuts, but by and large it's a very enjoyable YouTube clip, reminiscent of those stories of a man and his horse heading to a McDonald's about a year ago.

Unfortunately, things took a turn for the worse later on in the evening, with one of the riders getting tasered off his mount and getting arrested.

From the local area, the 44-year-old "cowboy" Michael Joseph Miller had visited a number of bars with his friends before the incident, which saw him charged with "suspicion of harassment, disorderly conduct, obstructing a police officer and resisting arrest", according to local paper The Steamboat Pilot.

90 minutes later, Miller was out of slammer after paying off a $750 bond from the Routt County Jail, telling reporters: "I had a great ride right up until the very end."
