Ejected Eagles fan arrested for punching police horse

Shutdown Corner

While most Philadelphia Eagles fans at Lincoln Financial Field on Saturday were euphoric over their team’s win over the Atlanta Falcons, securing Philly’s first appearance in the NFC championship since 2008, one was acting like a fool inside and outside of the stadium.

Via WPVI-TV and NBCSports Philadelphia, 22-year-old Taylor Hendricks was ejected from the game, and stupidly, allegedly, took his drunken frustrations out on a police horse near the gates.

A statement from Philadelphia police broke it down:

“On Saturday, January 13th, 2018, Security personnel at Lincoln Financial Field ejected the defendant because he was intoxicated and did not possess a ticket. After the male was ejected he walked over to a mounted officer and began punching the horse in the face, neck and shoulder area. The officer on the horse was then struck in the legs by the male. Another officer came over and grabbed the male who was placed in custody. The horse and officer were not injured.”

Hendricks was arrested and is now facing assault charges.

What a horse’s ass.
