An LAPD horse went from trusty steed to fugitive on the run on Venice Beach this weekend after it somehow lost its police officer rider … then tried to make a clean getaway.
The wild scene went down Saturday, and it starts out with a cop who somehow came off the saddle and attempted to run down the free-spirited stallion in the sand — to no avail. It looks like the horse might be freaked out by all the people who gathered around.
Yeah, that probably didn’t help … it quickly became a spectacle.
Eventually, the big fella found his fellow horse pal standing calmly nearby with its own rider mounted on top … and he finally settled down enough for the frantic officer to catch up and rein him in, literally. The horse stopped putting up a fight and allowed itself to be led away.
What’s crazy is that once the horse was away from the massive audience, it still was being a little stubborn and jittery. But, alas, the cowboy cop broke the bronco once more … and got back on the horse.
No official word on if they rode off into the sunset together — probably not, it was still around mid-afternoon here.
