Charles Larkin Cowart, 29, pleaded not guilty Tuesday in circuit court to charges of with interfering with railroad tracks or equipment and fleeing or attempting to elude police, both third-degree felonies, and misdemeanor counts of obstructing an officer without violence and cruelty to animals, The Daytona Beach (Fla.) News-Journal reported Wednesday.

Prosecutors said Bunnell police received a call Sept. 24 about a drunken man on horseback and when officers arrived, Cowart refused to dismount and reared the horse "in an aggressive manner." He rode through town, causing a train to stop to avoid hitting him on some tracks, and was arrested after dismounting in a wooded area.

Circuit Judge Raul Zambrano asked Cowart if he would be interested in a drug court program that could lead to the charges being dropped if he completes a process of support groups, treatment sessions and random drug testing. Cowart said he would discuss the possibility with his public defender.
