Judge: Polk woman unfit to care for horse after DUI while riding

- A Lakeland woman, arrested for a DUI while on her horse, has lost custody of the animal.

Back in November, Polk County deputies say Donna Byrne was weaving in and out of lanes on a busy highway.  She was arrested and charged with DUI.

Last week, a judge ruled that she was unfit to care for the horse, but did grant her visitation rights. Byrne's attorney says he plans on re-visiting the custody issue at a January 11 hearing.
