After a two-hour pursuit, police charge the horse with criminal trespassing and resisting arrest


During a two-hour pursuit, Alabama police charged a horse with’resisting arrest,’ and released a mugshot of the animal.

The authorities also released body camera footage of officers attempting for two hours to capture the escaping pony.

At around 10 p.m. on March 20, Tuscaloosa Police got a report that the pony was loose in the Alberta area.

According to the department, he was ‘very unwilling’ to accompany the cops and was not interested in the pizza crusts or peppermints they gave.

One cop can be seen on body camera footage attempting to throw a rope over the pony’s head as it tried to flee. It was ultimately apprehended and sent to a riding school, although authorities are unsure who owns it.

‘For nearly two hours, three cops engaged in a low-speed foot pursuit, trailing Ginuwine up and down driveways and across people’s back yards,’ it claimed.

According to authorities, the pony, whose identity is unknown and whose owner is unknown, has been provisionally christened Ginuwine.

He was taken to Tuscaloosa Therapeutic Riding, a riding school that will be his permanent home if his owners are never located.

When it was ultimately apprehended, authorities produced a bogus mugshot of the pony and announced that it would be ‘charged’ with third-degree criminal trespassing and resisting arrest, with a bond of $800 set.

‘To be honest, we get calls about things all the time, so I didn’t believe it. When I got over there, I noticed a pony running around free in the yard,’ stated one of the responding policemen.

‘I’ve never been called out to a horse before,’ added another, who was seen tossing the lasso in the video.

‘Tuscaloosa’s famous Ginuwine Pony is currently being fostered with us,’ according to the school.

The school looks to be generating extra income from the pony’s celebrity.

‘Ginuwine will be available for visitors during our Easter egg hunt on Saturday, April 1 from 2 to 4 PM,’ the company said on Facebook.

‘He’s still a little timid, so please look but don’t touch.
