Alcohol Probably Played No Part in This Incident

One doesn't normally think of Cape Cod as a place for drunken buffoonery and shenanigans unless you're part of the Kennedy family. But, one unfortunate chap thought it would be a good idea to punch a police horse in the tookis. From the Cape Cod Times:

Police were busy last night with fourteen arrests, including one of an Orleans man accused of punching a police horse.

Christopher McEnaney, 18, was arrested and charged with assault on a police horse and resisting arrest after he punched a horse from the Plymouth County Sheriff’s Office, one of the mounted patrol horses ridden during town’s raucous July 4 festivities, Provincetown police Sgt. Carrie Lopes said.

McEnaney is accused of punching the horse, Fred, in the animal’s flank at about 10:20 p.m. while the mounted patrol officers were in the area of Ryder Street and Commercial Street, Lopes said.
If Mr. McEnaney were a bit older, maybe he would've heeded the advice from Half-Baked that harming a police horse is considered "Assault on a Police Officer" and not just a hilarious prank to impress fellow members of the Yacht Club.

Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw could have also confirmed that shenanigans with police horses are frowned upon.

Horses can take a punch...He's lucky he didn't get bit. Yes, I'm speaking from experience.

He's hardly the yacht club type-already on bail for intent to distribute heroin and now caught with more drugs. Fred should've bit him
