Moo-ving violation: Drunk driver arrested after hitting cow

Shortly after 7 p.m. on May 10, police responded to a Carters Valley crash, where a GMC pickup had "struck a cow in the roadway."

The driver left the scene but was soon located and stopped, with officers observing him to have bloodshot eyes and slurred speech. He reportedly admitted to drinking "a few beers" earlier in the evening and was "unable" to perform sobriety tests. He was arrested and charged with DUI and leaving the scene of a crash. A police report says his truck sustained damage to the right front, while the cow's condition was not specified.
