BUNNELL, Fla. (AP) -- A man who police say was drunk while riding his horse through a northeast Florida town is now in jail after a police chase.

Flagler County jail records show 29-year-old Charles Cowart was arrested Monday. He's being held on $7,000 bond on charges that include disorderly conduct, resisting arrest without violence and cruelty to animals.

A message was left Tuesday at phone listing for Cowart in Bunnell, about 60 miles south of Jacksonville.

According to a charging affidavit, officers responded to a report of an "intoxicated male riding a horse" and found Cowart riding over railroad tracks. He told officers he was headed to his grandmother's house and ignored orders to get off the horse. He took off and police chased him for more than a half-hour.
