Man brings pony into liquor store, refuses to clean poop

May 29 (UPI) -- Police were called to a liquor store in Rhode Island after the owner of a Shetland pony allowed it to defecate on a rug in the store.

Store owners were prepared to press charges for property damage after the pony's owner refused to properly clean up after it. WJAR-TV reports that police de-escalated the situation by bringing William Saviano back to the store to clean up after his pony.

Saviano, 51, was at a children's pony show down the street before he decided to pick up wine on the way home. Several of the liquor store's 20 security cameras caught Saviano and his pony inside the store.

Other patrons and Saviano were laughing before he left. "They weren’t happy,” Saviano explained, referring to the store owners. “I didn’t think it was a big deal, and neither did anybody else actually.”

Police said Saviano has a criminal history dating back to 1988. He's been charged with domestic assault, disorderly conduct, malicious destruction of property and driving under the influence of alcohol, among other things.
