A 22-year-old man is accused of running up to a mounted police officer in downtown Minneapolis early Saturday morning and punching a police horse.

The Minneapolis Police Department says officers were patrolling on horseback after bar close when the man ran up, without provocation, and punched a police horse. Neither the horse or the ride were injured, CBS Minnesota reports.

The man — identified as Jacob Solberg, of Minneapolis — ran off, but officers quickly gave chase and arrested him.

That mug shot would have been priceless if it had a big 'ol horseshoe print on the dude's face!

He looks good considering. Shame there isn’t a giant horseshoe print on his forehead
