PHILADELPHIA – For the second time in two weeks a Philadelphia Eagles fan has been arrested for punching a police mounted horse at the stadium.
This time, the man accused of the criminal act has been identified as Andrew Tornetta, reported TMZ Sports.
According to police, Tornetta was going berserk during a pre-game tailgate party at Lincoln Financial Field before the Eagles took on the Vikings in the NFC Championship.
Authorities said the mounted Pennsylvania State Police units were breaking up a crazy situation when Tornetta refused to comply with orders to disperse.
Moreover, Tornetta punched a police mount twice in the right shoulder and then hit the mounted officer as well, according to authorities.
Apparently he is unaware how foolish it is to strike a horse.
Tornetta reportedly tried to flee—and removed his sweatshirt to try to evade police—but was eventually caught and arrested. He faces charges that include aggravated assault, simple assault, recklessly endangering another person, and related charges.
TMZ previously reported, another fan was arrested for punching a police horse in the face at Lincoln Financial Field the previous weekend when the Eagles defeated the Falcons.
