A 45-year-old man accused of going on a drunken horseback ride through Boulder while on his way to his brother's wedding in Utah failed to appear at a court hearing, and a warrant has been issued for his arrest.

Patrick Schumacher, of Colorado Springs, failed to appear at a hearing in Boulder on Friday, according to the Daily Camera.

University of Colorado police say witnesses saw him hit his horse and occasionally wander into traffic near the school Sept. 9. He faces several charges, including animal cruelty and being drunk while possessing a gun.

Police say Schumacher had a small pug in his backpack, as well as beer cans and a black-powder pistol in his saddlebag. He was traveling from Larkspur, Colo., to Bryce, Utah - a 600-mile journey.
