This Newcastle soccer fan is a jackass. After his team lost a game over the weekend, he was involved in a crazy riot that spilled over into the streets. And, for whatever reason, he thought it would be a good idea to use that as an excuse to punch a police horse. But he thought wrong. Shortly after landing the punch, he got tackled to the ground by a cop and hauled off to jail.

Oh, and just in case you're worried, the horse is 100 percent OK. He's currently back on the job after spending the weekend chilling out in his stable.
