  • A tight end for Ohio pleaded no contest to charges of disorderly conducting for punching a police horse. The crazy thing, I've actually seen that happen before. After the USA v. Argentina soccer game in the '96 Olympics, there were tens of thousands of people who rode the bus to the stadium from designated park and rides and there were only a handful of busses picking people back up. It took some peoople six hours or more to get home from the game due to poor planning from the city. We managed to get out after about 90 minutes due to our bribing a bus driver for a private company (I think it was Alabama Power) to let us get on board and to take us to our car. Best $20 I ever spent.

    Anyway, in the frenzy of people trying to get onto busses, the police were trying to keep order, but some people just weren't having it and some guy socked a horse right in the face. The thing rared back and nearly threw the officer. Once he got it calmed down, the policeman just took off because things were getting out of control.
