Now Here’s a Headline You Don’t See Every Day

“Cops: Eagles fan arrested after punching horse at the Linc”

It appeared this week on the web site, internet home of the Philadelphia Inquirer and Philadelphia Daily News, accompanied by the following explanation:

According to police, 22-year-old Taylor Hendricks, of Whitehall in Lehigh County, showed up to watch the highly-anticipated playoff game, but was ejected by the team because he was intoxicated and didn’t have a ticket.

Once he was ejected, authorities said, Hendricks walked over to a mounted police officer and began repeatedly punching the officer’s horse, striking the animal in the face, neck and shoulder. He also allegedly struck the officer in the legs. Another officer rushed over and arrested Hendricks.

“Mongo” this guy wasn’t.

There were no serious injuries.

Interviewed afterward, the horse explained that “My grandmother punches harder than this guy.”

As a result of the equine assault, reports,

Hendricks was charged with aggravated assault, taunting a police animal, simple assault and defiant trespass.

But that’s only because you can’t charge a person with stupid.
