Gary Dornan is accused of hitting the animal in Stirling, Scotland. He’s accused of breaching the peace by police after conducting himself in a disorderly manner and striking the police horse. The man chanted homophobic remarks addressed to the police officer. On the way to the police station the man threatened to hurt the officer and abused him verbally. The attack is said to have taken place Wednesday afternoon. He denied both charges and Sheriff Michael Wood granted bail, with a trial set for May 8.

Few weeks before in Scotland an evangelical preacher was cleared of homophobia after a teen boy had said the preacher discriminated and abused him but he was cleared of all charges after spending a night in jail.
