A Premiership soccer fan was banned from games for three years after he punched a police horse during an August match between Stoke City and Bolton.
[Shaun Allen] was with a group of about 15 Stoke fans who were drinking outside the stadium at 4.45pm, Bolton Magistrates’ Court heard. A police officer took a can off Allen and asked the group to move on, but Allen became abusive.
Whatever, it was totally worth it. Police horses have to be the worst combination of asshole animal and asshole profession in the world. I’d rather deal with a badger cable guy, or get audited by a feral cat IRS agent.
