ALLEN, TX-- Yo quiero...out of this ticket. That's what a Texas man is saying after cops cited him for riding his horse to Taco Bell. Allen, TX Police say it's illegal to ride an animal on a public street. But Rick Braun argues he's been going to the fast food chain by horse for years, often two to three nights a week.

Police say they've received complaints about horse droppings, but Braun says he never got those messages. The city of Allen, Texas, considers it a safety issue. There are concerns drivers won't see the horse in the dark.

Braun plans to fight the $255.00 citation in court.
