Ohio football player charged with hitting police horse
ATHENS, Ohio -- An Ohio University football player has been charged with smacking a police horse while officers were directing students away from a brawl outside a bar.
Twenty-one-year-old Corey Logan pleaded not guilty yesterday in Athens Municipal Court and denied intentionally hitting the horse. The 233-pound junior tight end from Columbus said the animal bumped him with its head on Saturday, and he flinched and accidentally hit the horse with his elbow.
But Athens police officer Randy Gray, who was riding the horse named Chip, said Logan struck the horse between the eyes with the heel of his hand.
If convicted, Logan could get 90 days in jail and a $750 fine.
