NEW YORK, June 27 (UPI) -- A horse-riding cowboy leading a second horse by the reigns caused a major traffic jam Monday by riding over a busy New York bridge.

A video posted to Twitter by user @calvs88 shows the man, dressed in western garb, riding a horse and leading a second equine by the reigns while crossing Staten Island's Outerbridge Crossing bridge in front of a long line of backed-up traffic.

"In case you're wondering why there's traffic on the Outerbridge Crossing," the tweet said.

The man is closely followed by a Port Authority Police Department patrol car with its emergency lights on.

A Port Authority police spokesman confirmed the patrol car was dispatched to escort the man to the other side of the bridge, but it was unclear whether the rider would face any fines or trespassing charges on the other side.
