San Francisco, CA - A San Francisco mounted police officer was arrested yesterday after an altercation with another police officer. The arrested officer, 31 year old Harold Hammonds, was charged with assaulting a police officer, insubordination and excessive use of force.
Hammonds allegedly was involved in a heated debate with Officer Biscuit, Hammonds horse. Biscuit apparently stopped during a chase to pee on the street, allowing a suspect to get away. Hammonds dismounted and became irate with the horse. Witnesses say that Hammonds slapped the horse after using profanity. On the second hit, Biscuit kicked Hammonds in the crotch, pressing down on his chest until a witness called the police to report the incident.
When asked for comment, Biscuit said, “Neigh”. The SFPD is investigating the incident further. Hammonds has been placed on administrative leave until the conclusion of an investigation. Hammonds has a date in Superior Court on Tuesday for his arraignment.
