Police officers working the Cubs detail said that they were standing on the corner of Clark and Addison at 10:05PM when they saw Ehle walked up and slap “Police Horse Kelly” on the right hind quarter. A third officer was seated atop Kelly at the time of the incident, the cops said.
“This action caused Police Horse Kelly to become startled and kick [the 23-year-old woman] in the midsection,” an officer said.
An ambulance was called for the victim, but she later declined medical attention.
