Horse-drawn trolley driver punches Chicago cop

Chicago Tribune

ROCHESTER, Mich. — The driver of a 30-passenger horse-drawn trolley sideswiped two cars at Rochester's Fire & Ice festival and later punched an officer in the face, police said.

Robert S. Warne, 35, of Lapeer was being held in the Oakland County jail on a felony charge of assaulting a police officer and is scheduled for arraignment Tuesday in circuit court.

Police found a half-empty bottle of vodka in Warne's pocket when they searched him, according to a Rochester police report from the Jan. 28 incident.
