LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A man on a horse had a run-in with police in Kentucky when he went for a ride on the highway.

According to an arrest report, 62-year-old Danny Cook was seen riding his horse on U.S. 27 in Stanford Sunday night.

WDRB-TV reports Cook was considered a traffic hazard by police. An arrest report says he goes by the nickname “Cowboy Cook,” and true to his name, he didn’t go quietly.

Officers caught up with Cook and asked him to stop, but he responded by yelling an expletive and threatening the officers.

He eventually stopped at a nearby Walmart and tied his horse off, but refused to cooperate. Police had to take him to the ground to arrest him. Cook was charged with evading police, terroristic threatening and resisting arrest.
