A liquor store in Rhode Island called the police after a man who brought in a pony and refused to clean up its poop.

William Saviano, 51, told WJAR-TV that he was on his way home from a children’s pony show on Monday and decided to Patriot’s Liquors in Warren to pick up some wine. Saviano said that a sign outside the liquor store only forbid dogs and cats, so he brought his Shetland pony inside.

But owners of the store called police when the pony defecated on a rug and Saviano refused to clean up the mess.

“They weren’t happy,” Saviano explained. “I didn’t think it was a big deal, and neither did anybody else actually.”

Police were able to get the store owners to agree not to press charges after Saviano returned to clean up the pony poop.

The store now has a “No Horses Allowed” sign, and Saviano has promised not to bring his pony inside.
