Motorist pulled over by officer on horseback.

Imagine looking in the rear view mirror and seeing a horse trotting behind your vehicle. 

That's what one motorist found while turning on to Warren Avenue from Wayne State University's campus Friday. 

The moment was captured by a student and posted on her Twitter @Sam_Farrah12.  

Officer Brandon Murphy of the Wayne State University Police Department and the Detroit Police Department's Mounted Unit, wasn't horsing around.

He told WXYZ that he noticed, as he rode high above others on the road, that the driver was texting and driving without a seat belt. 

Murphy told WXYZ the female driver was shocked to see him as she was issued a ticket.
