[Ed. – Witnesses say the horse threw the first punch.]
An “anti-fascist” (antifa) counter-protester at the “March Against Sharia” in Harrisburg, PA was arrested Saturday after allegedly stabbing a police horse in the neck with a flag pole.
Lisa Simon, 23, was with a group of antifa demonstrators at the march when she attacked a police horse named Samson with a flag pole that had a silver nail attached at the top. Simon hit Samson in the side of the neck, reports Fox 43.
Luckily, Samson had only minor injuries, and Simon was taken into custody after resisting arrest.
Simon was charged with aggravated assault, illegally taunting a police animal, prohibited offensive weapons, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and obstruction administrative law. She is being held in lieu of $100,000 bail.
Antifa released a statement about Simon’s arrest alleging that the charges are “fabricated” and that Simon is a “political prisoner.”
