Sheriff: Drunken man admits to stealing horse to watch Mardi Gras parade

NAPOLEONVILLE, LA (WVUE) - A Napoleonville man is behind bars after he admitted to stealing a horse and attempting to take it to a Mardi Gras parade, according to the Assumption Parish Sheriff's Office. 

It happened Feb. 15 around 8 a.m.

The man, identified as 20-year-old Maison Rivere, admitted to being drunk and was attempting to ride the horse bareback all the way to Thibodaux to watch a Mardi Gras parade. The horse bucked him off several times. Police say it was at that point Rivere set the horse free and attempted to make his way home on foot.

Rivere was booked in the Assumption Parish Detention Center and booked on charges of criminal damage to property, simple cruelty to animals, and theft (horse valued at $10,000)(Felony). 

His bond has not been set.
