A Florida man showed a serious lack of horse sense after he got caught in the living room of a house he'd just broken into -- and tried to convince deputies that the real burglar was the horse that had accompanied him.
Lonnie Maddox was nabbed by cops responding to a call from the homeowner, who'd gotten notifications about a trespasser from his Ring doorbell. The video shows Maddox wandering around the property with the horse in tow before breaking a back window. The 52-year-old insisted his pony pal was actually responsible for the damage, but broke down and confessed when confronted with the video evidence.
Maddox was corralled at the county jail, while the horse, which he'd borrowed from an acquaintance, was returned to the owner unharmed. (Bay News 9)
