According to the Facebook post, three officers engaged in a low-speed pursuit where they followed the pony up and down driveways, and through backyards for close to two hours.


The pony, who TPD has temporarily named Ginuwine, has been caught and is safe. The Tuscaloosa Police Department is currently searching for his owner but has arranged for a permanent home in case the owner isn't found.


The public is being asked to call Investigator Hopeman at 205-248-4780 with information regarding this pony's owner.
