PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Police in Portland, Oregon, have arrested Joseph Cruz, 29, accused of running up to a police horse, uttering a “karate-like battle cry” and delivering what a spokesman calls “a jumping, double kick” to the horse’s right thigh.

Police say Olin the horse was unfazed and unhurt Wednesday. A spokesman notes Olin outweighed his attacker by about 1,000 pounds.
