No one was able to determine as to why the incident occurred or when Kelly actually met the horse. He is apparently denying the charges against him and says that the animal looked hungry hence he fed him the roll. Many took to Twitter to talk about the case and said how trivial matters are given importance these days. As was reported in telegraph.co.uk, Michelle McLaughlin tweeted, “Seriously, is a man to stand trial for feeling a police horse a sausage roll … the world has gone mad.”
Apparently this is not the first time that a police horse has been the cause of some legal problem. In 2006 a police officer's horse was called gay by an Oxford student and he was arrested for making the remark after he refused to pay a fine of £80 fine. He spent a night in a police cell before charges were dropped. Police defended their decision to pursue the case. As for Kelly, he will return to Glasgow’s Justice of the Peace court next February for his trial.
