On Saturday, Jan. 13th, security personnel at Lincoln Financial Field, 1 Lincoln Financial Way, ejected a 22-year-old male because he was intoxicated and did not possess a ticket. After the male was ejected he walked over to a mounted officer and began punching the horse in the face, neck and shoulder area, officer Tanya Little, of the Philadelphia Police Department Office of Media Relations/Public Affairs said. The officer on the horse was then allegedly struck in the legs by the male. Another officer came over and grabbed the suspect, who was placed in custody, Little said. The horse and officer were not injured.

Taylor Hendricks, from Whitehall, was charged with aggravated assault, assault of a law enforcement officer, cruelty to animals and related offenses.
