John Mulvenna, 56, who also received a 12-month conditional discharge when he pleaded guilty in Barnsley, England, to a charge of being drunk in charge of a horse and carriage, maintained he went through the red light because his horse, Fred, is colorblind, The Daily Express reported Monday.

Stephen Glover, better known as "Steve-O" from the MTV show Jackass, was arrested in August 2002 in Louisiana on charges stemming from outrageous stunts done in a local nightclub. He had allegedly performed "The Butterfly" - an act in which he staples his scrotum to his leg - and was involved in the injury of a patron. The then-28-year-old Glover was convicted and slapped with one year of probation and a fine and was banned from ever performing in Terrebonne Parish, Louisiana again. In May 2003, Steve-O was arrested again, this time by Swedish authorities, for making jokes about smuggling drugs into the country. He admitted to possession of marijuana and ecstasy and paid a hefty fine.
