COPS: Man "Played Drums" On Police Horse's Butt

This just in from our court clerk friend:

Three men were arrested and charged with reckless conduct for allegedly battering a Chicago Police Department horse after the August 29 Foo Fighters concert at Wrigley Field.

Suburban firefighter Michael Vaughn, 23, is accused of slapping the horse's hindquarter several times "in a drum type motion."

Brent Tinkham, a 38-year-old attorney who lives in Wrigleyville, and Oscar Ledezma, 38, of Portage Park, are accused in court filings of slapping the horse with their hands.

The horseplay "caused the horse to become startled, jeopardizing the safety of the mounted unit officer and the citizens nearby," police said.

The horse, "Airhart," is named in honor of fallen Chicago Police Officer Joseph Airhart Jr.

      We really should get a retainer fee for all of the stories the MSM gets from us.

    2. On the positive side, at least they are also copying your coverage on real crime rates in Lakeview, etc. One other positive, these idiots, especially the 38 year old attorney will be exposed in the mainstream media. Who would hire this guy?

  9. I have hard time believing even a drunk idiot would try to play drums on a horse's ass, it's not as if the whole horses kicking thing is a secret.

  10. Three separate people slap the same horse on the same night? Sounds fishy to me. I wonder how many other people have been accused of slapping this same horse after big events.

    1. I'm surprised that only three people slapped the horse, knowing the type of idiots you find outside of a concert or ballgame at Wrigley. But I can also attest to the fact that the lawyer is exactly the type of dickwhistle who would drunkenly slap the horse.

  11. Interesting that you're all trusting the word of the CPD without knowing what really happened.

    1. Not particularly interesting. We simply cite police reports and court records, just like any news outlet.

    2. I think Anonymous was referring to the other commentors who have resorted to calling names without sufficient details about what really happened.
