SIX MILE, SC. (NBC) - A Pickens County, South Carolina woman was ticketed over the weekend for riding a stolen horse down Main Street in the town of Six Mile, but police said the woman blamed the horse for the ticket.

Tracy Nadine Ellenburg, 40, was given a ticket for disorderly conduct after a pedestrian flagged down an officer on Saturday and told them Ellenburg was riding down the center yellow line and was barely able to stay on the horse.

The sheriff's report said an officer found a large tan horse tied to a bench at a convenience store and found Ellenburg trying to use a phone inside.

The officer said Ellenburg's speech was slurred, she had an aroma of alcohol and was unsteady on her feet.

She told the officer she was riding the horse to her boyfriend's house.

Ellenburg stated that "she wasn't drunk, the horse was," the officer said.

She then admitted she had consumed a six-pack of beer before leaving the house on horseback.

The horse's owner said the animal was taken without his consent, but he didn't press charges.
