@bakcagain: OK then, I can agree with that. I failed to take his drunken state into account when I "surmised" he as looking at the dark horse. His reactions would be slowed enough that he could very well have been "surprised" by it.
It's "just an excuse" though, and the cops were right in arresting and charging him. Either way the Judge decides is valid, unless there`s more evidence one way or the other (of course! That`s always the case, eh?).

@5cat's I agree and have agreed with everything else you have said. I don`t think he is a nice guy(I think he`s a benefit scrounger), I don`t think the cops were wrong in tackling him and arresting him(said thankfully he was tackled).
The only thing I`m saying is I believe him when he says "WTF a horse is infront of me" and panics like a little child. But as we all know, it`s not a subjective test for self defence it`s objective. Upto society to decide if the fear was reasonable which I don`t really think it is. But I believe him when he says he was watching it go down and got scared.

Yup he apologised for twatting the hoss basically as he is on benefits for a severe lung affliction he cant afford to lose the good wishes of the queen to take his Â£100 odd quid a week benefits off him

@MrTwidgit: Found That Here? That's the same video @bakcagain posted...
So @Bakcagain: We`re looking at the video, frame by frame, and we cannot decide if he did it "on purpose" or not? HOW are the police at the scene supposed to know any different? It LOOKS like he did, so ARREST him for it!
To me, he`s looking at the white horse `straight ahead` at 34, then turns to his right at 35, and rather than get out of the way? raises his arms (fists) and steps TOWARDS the charging horse! Also: The horse is practically stopped when it reaches him. Plus he`s probably drunk... No matter how "nice a guy" he is while sober? In this video he`s just another drunk in the MIDDLE of a riot, causing trouble.
