Oklahoma man faces charges stemming from horse, police officer skirmish



Watch out, folks, Mr. Ed has been trained to attack.

According to an Associated Press report, a 39-year-old Ottawa County man is facing assault charges after he allegedly tried to run down a police officer on horseback.

The police affidavit reports that the coppers visited the man's home last weekend to investigate a domestic violence claim. They were in the middle of interviewing a woman when the suspect galloped onto the scene atop his faithful steed. When the cops tried to get him off the horse, he allegedly tried to knock the officers down, according to the AP.

His behavior didn't stop there. According to the story, he is also accused to spitting on one officer and kicking another. Did someone learn their manners in the barn?
