BERLIN (AP) - A little cleanup was called for after an inebriated man - and his horse - decided to hit the hay in the foyer of a bank in a town southwest of Berlin.
An early-morning customer discovered the two when he entered the bank to use the automatic teller machine.
The horse's owner, identified only as Wolfgang H., told the newspaper Bild that he had "a few beers" with a friend in Wiesenburg the night before.
Police said Tuesday that the 40-year-old machinist was one his way home when he decided to sleep it off inside the heated foyer of the bank.
Confronted with the lack of a hitching post, he brought the six-year-old horse, named Sammy, in with him.
When a customer came across the horse and sleeping rider in the bank at 4:15 a.m. Monday, he called police, who then came and woke the owner up and sent him on his way.
No charges were filed.
As to the cleanup: It appears Sammy made his own after hours deposit on the carpet.
