ATHENS, Ohio -- An Ohio University football player who authorities said punched a police horse pleaded no contest to disorderly conduct Wednesday in Athens and was fined $100.
Corey Logan of Columbus also has been ordered to perform 20 hours of community service.
Police say that Logan, a 22-year-old senior tight end, punched a horse ridden by an officer outside a bar in April. Logan denied that he punched the horse, saying he put his hand on it when the animal's head ran into him.
Logan said that football officials told him the case wouldn't
hurt his status with the team.
