Also in the print edition of the Telegraph today is a story about a man who has been arrested for allegedly trying to poison a police horse by feeding it drugs, which turned out to be a white powder. Arrested on suspicion of attempting to poison a protected animal he was subsequently released on bail.
Presumably if this ever reaches trial the perpetrator will, in pleading not guilty, issue a denial, or in this case, 'neighsay'
It is also possible his defence may contain a promise not to 'bridle' against authority; to do his 'bit' and not 'stirr up' further trouble; not to 'saddle' the police with wasting their time and to 'rein in' his activities?
