Blame the Horse?

I’m not sure the horse-crashed-into-my-car defense is going to work:

A former New York City police detective who is a TV news reporter for the Fox affiliate WNYW was charged with intoxicated driving after his car collided with a police horse on Monday night.
Michael Sheehan was arrested in Manhattan’s SoHo area. Prosecutors said the 60-year-old Sheehan refused a breath test and this resulted in an automatic suspension of his license

Defense lawyer Thomas Monaghan said the horse slammed into Sheehan’s car, “not the other way around.” He said the truth will vindicate Sheehan.

Maybe the horse was drunk?
