Man faces trial for feeding police horses sausage rolls

Police horses and sausage rolls Francis Kelly denies the breach of the peace allegation over feeding police horses sausage rolls

A 41-year-old man is to stand trial after being arrested for feeding sausage rolls to police horses.

Francis Kelly faces a breach of the peace charge over allegedly feeding the animals pastries in Pollokshaws Road, Glasgow, on 26 September this year.

The charge alleges he behaved in a "threatening or abusive manner" and "adopted an aggressive stance" towards officers when told to put food away.

Mr Kelly, who denies the charge, faces trial at a Justice of the Peace court.

It is not known how Mr Kelly, who is from the city's Govanhill area, initially came into contact with the horses.

He was unavailable for comment regarding the allegations, but a source close to the case said he would be fighting the charge.

The source said: "His view is simply that he thought the horses looked hungry - daft as that sounds."

So the police told him to stop and put his sausage rolls away and he became aggressive towards them. Seems like the police did the right thing.

Not sure how you think that's "stupidly politically correct" ?

Because they are worrying about/giving more importance to someone feeding a horse sausage rolls more than the economy. It's happening here in Australia too.

Well, isn't the Kelly family known criminals from way, way back anyways? Maybe the Doctor brought him forward from the past and dumped him. So I guess the coppers are lucky he didn't feed them to to the horses. :rofl:

Someone could easily slip some poison in to the food. It would cost a whole load of money to replace the horse.

Not sure if you know how levels of government work, but beat cops don't really work very much in the economic sector.

I wouldn't feed a police horse sausage rolls myself - it's a stupid thing to do. And I understand and have read the line "the charge alleges he behaved in a "threatening or abusive manner" and "adopted an aggressive stance" towards officers when told to put food away." I would have also charged him for doing this (feeding the horse and acting stupid afterwards).

I am not British, but this is really dumb. The police are inept. I mean I love how they didn't do anything to stop the riots in England a few years ago when it was all going down and they take the time to arrest this guy for feeding horses sausages (not that I would feed them sausages, but it's a stupid thing to get arrested for and it's even more stupid that the police would waste their time arresting someone for doing it).

For all the dumb things you guys think America does, this is one of the dumbest things I have read this year.

Love the taste of that freedom.

Yeah because any harm to their horse wouldn't be looked at as their fault and I'm sure the responsibility of the horse isn't theirs and it wouldn't cost anything if something bad happened such as the food being poisoned/contaminated with anything. :rolleyes:

The riots was stupid, but that's completely different. They seemed to believe if they held off and didn't intervene that everything would turn out well and that their presence might inflame the riots into something more serious, not being able to use anything in their own defense except riot shields and batons didn't help either... of course it got worse on it's own and they ended up looking stupid. Which brings us back to the subject!

Most mounted units don't allow the feeding of their horses, it's not just a British thing. It's not just police horses you're not supposed to feed either, even feeding other peoples pets without their permission is frowned upon.

The only dumb thing here is the guy who tried to feed the horse and then be aggressive afterwards. If you want to talk about freedoms, have a look at your own being encroached upon before you blindly attack our police for telling someone not to feed their horse. There is also no freedom or law saying you can feed police horses.

Most of the time I don't agree with everything our police force does but everything you said in your post... stupid.

Most moronic reply of the month? Possibly even a contender for the year.

Exactly, this has nothing to do with being politically correct, this has to do with being told to stop feeding the horse and then kicking off about it, for which anyone in most countries would be arrested for

could have something to do with the fact Horses are "[url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horse#Digestion"]Herbivores[/url]" so eating anything with meat could have made them ill or worse considering what they tend to use in sausagerolls.

Ok, he fed the horses sausage rolls and acted like an idiot when told to stop, but is it really worth spending the money putting him on trial for it? Why not just issue a caution or a fine or something?

What's the difference between this guy and some idiot who's gone out and got out of his head on alcohol and behaves like a idiot?
