Authorities say a man has been arrested after slapping a mounted police horse during a Wichita festival.
The Wichita Eagle reports that the 36-year-old man was booked into jail on suspicion of battery of a police animal. Police officer Charley Davidson says the horse wasn’t hurt when it was struck Saturday evening as Riverfest was winding down and crowds were leaving.
Only one other person was arrested at the festival. That arrest was for a minor in possession of alcohol and obstruction.
