Fla. man arrested for punching police horse

The Associated Press

TAMPA, Fla. — Police say a Lakeland man has been arrested after he punched a police horse in the rear end.

A Tampa Police Department report says 24-year-old Carl Coward, 24, balled his fist and punched the horse in the right rear hip area as the officer and horse were clearing an area in Ybor City early yesterday.

A jail official says Coward was charged with offenses against police animals and has been released from jail on $500 bond. It was not immediately known if he had an attorney.
