Police probing video of panicked horse inside Florida nightclub
UPI News Service, 03/09/2018
Police in Florida are investigating after a video recorded inside a nightclub captured a panicked horse bucking its rider inside the crowded business.
A video shared on Facebook and Instagram by Leeza Marie Juelle shows a female go-go dancer in black lingerie riding a white horse through the crowd inside Mokai Lounge in South Beach when the panicked equine bucks her off.
The video shows a man struggling to control the horse as the crowd parts to give it space. The animal appears to be uninjured and seems to calm down after a few seconds.
"Shame on Mokai Lounge for ever allowing this to happen. I've reached out to local law enforcement and am hoping to hear back," Juelle wrote. "This is inhumane and deserves serious attention ASAP."
Miami Beach Police tweeted Friday morning that the incident is being investigated.
"Last night MBPD was made aware of this incident at Mokai. We are very concerned over the allegations," police tweeted. "As such, we have launched a joint investigation with [Miami Beach] Code Enforcement."
