Chicago officer injured after fall from horse

Chicago Tribune

CHICAGO, Ill. — An officer was injured near Soldier Field after falling from his horse Sunday evening during the Bears game.

About 6 p.m., an officer with CPD’s Mounted Unit doing crowd control at the Bears game was injured when his horse lifted its head and struck him in the face, causing him to fall, police News Affairs Sgt. Eugene Mullins said.

The officer was taken from Soldier Field to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in good condition with lacerations to his face and a possible broken nose, Mullins said.

What caused the horse to lift its head is unknown, Mullins said.

A Central District captain said the horse was separated from the officer somehow, but no further information on the animal was available as of 8 p.m.
