LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – A good time is to be had at Churchill Downs but for one Georgetown, Kentucky man, the fun went a little too far, according to police.
Police say it all went down during the Breeders’ Cup festivities Saturday around 4 p.m.
They say 24-year-old Michael Wells-Rody was allegedly under the influence of alcohol when he snuck into a restricted area.
That’s when they say Wells-Rody mounted a horse and rode it out of the tunnel area into the track entrance of Churchill Downs.
When he was asked to leave the horse and the area, they say Wells-Rody allegedly became loud and disorderly, causing alarm to staff members.
Wells-Rody has been charged with public intoxication and disorderly conduct.
He is expected to be arraigned Nov. 7.
