ATHENS, Ohio -- An Ohio University football player has been charged with smacking a police horse while officers were directing students away from a brawl outside a bar.
Twenty-one-year-old Corey Logan pleaded not guilty yesterday in Athens Municipal Court and denied intentionally hitting the horse. The 233-pound junior tight end from Columbus said the animal bumped him with its head on Saturday, and he flinched and accidentally hit the horse with his elbow.
But Athens police officer Randy Gray, who was riding the horse named Chip, said Logan struck the horse between the eyes with the heel of his hand.
If convicted, Logan could get 90 days in jail and a $750 fine.

speaking of news, and drinking, here is a story of a 400 liter barrell of rum that needed emptied.

Hungarian builders who drank their way to the bottom of a huge barrel of rum while renovating a house got a nasty surprise when a pickled corpse tumbled out of the empty barrel, a police magazine website reported.

According to online magazine, workers in Szeged in the south of Hungary tried to move the barrel after they had drained it, only to find it was surprisingly heavy and were shocked when the body of a naked man fell out.

The website said that the body of the man had been shipped back from Jamaica 20 years ago by his wife in the barrel of rum in order to avoid the cost and paperwork of an official return.

According to the website, workers said the rum in the 300-liter barrel had a "special taste" so they even decanted a few bottles of the liquor to take home.

The wife has since died and the man was buried in a proper grave.
