Man feeds sausage roll to police horse; charged for breaching peace
A man is in knee deep trouble after he fed sausage rolls to a 'hungry' police horse. The authorities have filed a case against him for 'breaching peace'.

A MAN has been accused of breaching the peace of Glasgow this year by feeding a sausage roll to a police horse. He was warned against feeding the animal a meat pastry but he did not pay heed to anyone's voice and gave the roll anyway to the horse. Friends of the 41-year-old offender say that the man said that the horse 'looked hungry.' The incident took place on September 26.

While the critics feel that it is a trivial case and by trying the case people are wasting money. On the other hand prosecutors feel that the accused, Mr. Kelly behaved in a “threatening or abusive manner” by attempting to feed meat to the horse.

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, 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.
