Authorities in Dekalb, Alabama say a drunk woman rode a stolen horse to a store, and then shoplifted from the store.

The Dekalb County Sheriff said that Christine Saunders, 45, of Fyffe, Alabama tied up the stolen horse outside the store.

Deputies found three cans of Keystone Light beer in a Walmart bag that was tied to the horse's saddle, according to a WJHL report.

Saunders was arrested and charged with public intoxication and illegal possession of a prohibited beverage.

The horse was returned to its owner.
