A Missouri woman was arrested for hitting a police horse during a Donald Trump protest.
Authorities say the mounted patrol was helping with crowd control during the March 12, 2016 rally in Kansas City. A large group of anti-Trump protesters were gathering and putting masks over their faces and locking arms. Next, the group backed into the street, stopped traffic and walked near the cops.
Among the group, April Foster was told several times to return to the sidewalk. Instead, she approached an officer and his horse Dan, screaming in his face. She then struck the horse with an open hand, authorities say.
Foster, 29, tried fleeing into the crowd, but tipsters alerted police to her identity and a warrant was issued for her arrest. She was finally arrested and charged with abuse of a police service animal.
