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.
