The following is an adapted press release from the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office:
Patrolling Flagler County roadways can mean more than just traffic stops and nabbing criminals. It can also include a few rodeo skills as part of the job.
Shortly before 7 a.m. Thursday, Sheriff’s Office deputies were dispatched to State Road 100, near County Road 25 and County Road 305, where a four-legged suspect with auburn hair and blue eyes was causing a traffic tie-up.
Deputy Steve Williams located a mini-horse walking around the neighborhood in the early dawn hours.
At one point, the deputy provided a short escort to County Road 205 in an effort to get her off the main highway.
Williams was able coax the horse to the rear of his patrol car where he slyly slipped a lasso around her neck and secured her out of the traffic flow.
The owner was located and, shortly after 8 a.m, the horse was returned to her home barn on County Road 25.
