The man owns a horse and stables it in the Bronx. When arrested, the man was riding the horse while in an intoxicated condition. The horse was ridden into a tree and sustained minor injuries which required veterinary treatment. He was charged with reckless endangerment, criminal mischief and other cruelty charges are being pressed by the ASPCA.
