It sounds like the set-up to a joke..."Did ya hear the one about the guy who brought a pony into a liquor store?

William Saviano was on his way home from a children's pony show and decided to stop at Patriot's Liquors in Warren, Rhode Island to pick up some wine.

A sign outside the store said that no cats and dogs were allowed inside, so naturally he brought his pony right in and the pony pooped on the rug.

Saviano refused to clean up the mess saying 'They weren't happy" "I didn't think it was a big deal and neither did anybody else"...sure William.

Police were able to get the store owners to not press charges after Saviano return to the store to clean up and no doubt pick up a keg.

The store now has a "No Horses Allowed" sign.
