JACKSBORO, Tenn. (WREG) -- A Tennessee woman was charged with public intoxication after being spotted chewing on a miniature horse’s mane, claiming it was candy.
Cynthia Teeple was spotted at a home in LaFollette last month, according to the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office. WLAF reports Teeple was seen shirtless eating grass and dirt from the horse enclosure and chewing on the horse’s mane near its head.
When asked where her shirt was, she looked down and did not know her shirt was missing, WLAF reports. A deputy found her shirt about 30 feet from her.
WLAF said she told the deputy, “The horse’s hair is made of Laffy Taffy and AirHead candy.”
Teeple was allegedly unsteady on her feet and having involuntary muscle movements that caused her to stumble several times and almost fall, WLAF said.
The deputy said she didn’t know where she was and admitted to taking meth the day before. Teeple was then taken into custody.
