In a term synonymous with stupid human tricks, a Florida Man recently found himself on the wrong side of the law when he decided to slap the arse of a police horse on patrol.

According to a local news outlet, the incident occurred in St. Petersburg, also quite the party town, in the wee hours of a Saturday morning. “While riding his police horse, the officer said that he saw Alisha Lalani, 27, of Odessa, walk behind his partner, who was also riding a police horse, open his hand and slap the horse’s rear end.”

The horses were both wearing flashing red and blue lets, making it clear they were police horses ‒ one could argue however that flashing lights or not, no one should go around slapping any horse’s butt.

The open-hand slap didn’t go unpunished, although Lalani apparently told the officers he “didn’t know he wasn’t allowed to hit the horses.” He was charged with battery of a police horse.
