If you live in Warren, Rhode Island and wonder why there’s a “No Horses Allowed” sign outside the local liquor store, here’s why:
William Saviano, a 51-year-old man, reportedly brought his pony into a liquor store to buy some wine. And that, if you can believe it, is not the dumb part. The dumb part is that the cops were called in…
The store’s surveillance video recorded the whole incident. At first everyone seemed entertained at the sight of an actual pony in a liquor store but things didn’t stay adorable for long …because the pony defecated all over the store’s rug just before closing time. As you’d expect, the store’s owner was not too pleased. Cops forced Saviano to come back and clean up the pony’s horse-sized mess after he refused to do it. At least Saviano could have offered him a free ride on the pony for all the trouble he’d caused.
And what was Saviano even doing with an actual pony in the first place? Apparently, he’d just spent the day entertaining some kids and had stopped by the liquor store to pick up a bottle of wine on his way home. Pretty standard practice for those who make a living entertaining kids.
Saviano, was also quoted saying that he didn’t know what the big deal was. Of course, if your career involved a lot of horse poop and kid vomit you’d probably have a pretty warped sense of what constitutes a “big deal.”
This isn’t the first time the cops have had to deal with Saviano’s antics. The police said he has an extensive criminal history including domestic assault, disorderly conduct, malicious destruction of property and driving under the influence.
Sounds like the kind of guy I’d want entertaining my kids. Follow the link below for the video because you know you want to see a pooping liquor store pony before you shuffle off this mortal coil.
