NS. LOUIS (KMOV.com)-A video of a strange conflict at Ballpark Village last weekend. Police tried to arrest a man riding a horse on the grounds of Ballpark Village, but during the incident, police officers pulled out their weapons and aimed them at the rider.
The St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department has not released details about what happened. However, the ministry was aware of the incident and said an internal investigation was underway. An off-duty police officer, who had a secondary job of providing security at Ballpark Village, confronted a man riding a horse in the Together Credit Union Plaza area, sources said. The man, who was on his bare chest but not his back, refused to leave.
In the video, when the policeman walks towards the suspect and the suspect appears to be moving his horse towards the policeman, he sees the policeman pulling out his weapon and pointing it at the rider. Then you can see the policeman holstering his weapon and trying to pull a man out of the horse, perhaps to arrest him. But when the man resists, the policeman pulls the weapon again. News 4 showed a video to some customers at Ballpark Village on Tuesday night.
“I’m curious about how horses came to the city,” said John Brand.
“I think it’s crazy,” said Darrell Olson.
“I’m also worried when I see the police reaction to it. He seems to have been able to handle it in a gentler way,” Kevin Sticht said.
Police officers were worried because the rider on the horse had a large iron on his waist, according to sources. As the cop drops the rider off the horse, he can be seen in a video that continues to resist. The video concludes with the suspect walking away, grabbing the horse’s bridle and trotting behind.
Police did not say whether they eventually locked in the suspect and what happened to the horse.
