(Portland, OR) -- A 29-year-old man is facing charges after he allegedly kicked a Portland police horse. Authorities say mounted patrol officers were in on Northwest Sixth Avenue in Old Town yesterday morning when the man yelled out a "karate-like battle cry" and landed a double kick on the horse's leg. The horse wasn't injured. "The Oregonian" reports Joseph Cruz is charged with interfering with a law enforcement animal.
