Man faces trial for feeding police horses sausage rolls ~ BBC

Police horses and sausage rollsA 41-year-old man is to stand trial after being arrested for feeding sausage rolls to police horses.

Francis Kelly faces a breach of the peace charge over allegedly feeding the animals pastries in Pollokshaws Road, Glasgow, on 26 September this year.

The charge alleges he behaved in a “threatening or abusive manner” and “adopted an aggressive stance” towards officers when told to put food away.

Mr Kelly, who denies the charge, faces trial at a Justice of the Peace court.

It is not known how Mr Kelly, who is from the city’s Govanhill area, initially came into contact with the horses.

He was unavailable for comment regarding the allegations, but a source close to the case said he would be fighting the charge.

The source said: “His view is simply that he thought the horses looked hungry – daft as that sounds.”
