Facing Court: Man Who Fed a Sausage Roll to Police Horse

Quote:
In a rare case, Francis Kelly was charged with causing a breach of the peace in Glasgow earlier this year.
Authorities say the 41-year-old broke the law when he ignored police warnings and gave the pastry to the animal.

But friends of Mr Kelly said tonight that he had done nothing wrong. He gave it a sausage roll because he thought the animal “looked hungry”, they said.
Critics said the case was a waste of money and questioned why it was being brought before the courts next year.
Prosecutors will allege that on September 28 Mr Kelly behaved in a “threatening or abusive manner” by attempting to feed meat to the horse.

The court will also be told that he “adopted an aggressive stance” towards officers when told to put the food away.
It was, however, unclear why the police horses were in the area or when he initially came into contact with the animals.
Mr Kelly, from the Govanhall district of Glasgow, was unavailable for comment.
He is said to deny the charge. A source close to the case insisted that he would be fighting the accusation.
“His view is simply that he thought the horses looked hungry — daft as that sounds,” a friend said
Critics took to social networking internet sites claim the prosecution amounted to a “waste of money”.
“Seriously, is a man to stand trial for feeling a police horse a sausage roll … the world has gone mad,” Michelle McLaughlin said on the Twitter microblogging website.
Another user called “Lorraine M”, said: “Meanwhile in Glasgow.. Man stands trial for trying to feed sausage roll to a Police Horse. Yes you read right.”
Jack Harvey added: “Apparently the officer who charged the man said he heard the horse clearly say 'neigh' when offered the sausage roll. #SausageRollGate.”
Some online forums were also dominated by people joking about whether horses liked sausage rolls.
In 2006, an Oxford University student asked a mounted police officer if he realised his horse was “gay” during a night out with friends after his final exams.
Sam Brown, 21, was arrested for making homophobic remarks after he refused to pay an £80 fine. He spent a night in a police cell before charges were dropped. Police defended their decision to pursue the case.
Mr Kelly will return to Glasgow’s Justice of the Peace court next February for trial.
Spokesmen for Strathcylde Police or the Procurator Fiscal’s Office were unavailable for comment tonight.

INB4 some bleeding heart muppet screams loss of rights and all that.

Heres a hint. When an officer TELLS you to not do something whilst in uniform, especially to the horse he is mounted on, it is an order and not a request.

You ignore that order and what happens?

Too many idiots around these days.

He was clearly trying to be funny or trying to get a reaction by the cop.
Well, he got it.

Should've gotten the Tazer, just for disobeying the cop.
In addition, horses are finicky and can die from eating fucking grass wrong, you damn sure shouldn't be feeding it random meat and bread.

Any bread becomes doughy in the gut & can cause impaction colic or foundering in a horse.

That reads so funny, like 'food' is a misprint instead of 'gun'.

Guy was silly really and will have to face the music.

How's that homophobic and warranting of an £80 fine - or even arrestable?

A uniform doesn't make them god.
While I agree that Dinglefritz shouldn't have attempted to the feed the horse after being told not to, I don't think this warranted going to trial.
