TAMPA, FL – A Tampa Police officer was caught on tape walking his horse through a crowded Ybor City bar, and the police chief said she approves of it.
The 37 second video was posted on YouTube and shows a mounted police officer walking his horse through Habibi’s Hookah Bar on 7th Avenue. A woman is heard screaming in surprise as the horse rounds a corner into her path.
Tampa Police Chief Jane Castor said, “It’s good public relations.” However, one business owner complained about the practice.

I know police horses are really well trained an all, but this just seems like an unnecessary risk taken simply to showboat the officer’s authority.
