Goat rides shotgun with suspected drunk driver in Riverside County
Authorities stopping a suspected drunk driver near Hemet earlier this week found an unusual passenger riding shotgun: a goat.
The incident began when a California Highway Patrol officer pulled over the vehicle Tuesday afternoon. The driver remained in the vehicle, while another man inside bolted down the street but fell.
Neither man claimed ownership of the goat, which led authorities to suspect that it had been stolen, said John Welsh, spokesman for the Riverside County Animal Services Department.
Welsh said Thursday that goat was resting comfortably in a shelter.
