- Philadelphia Police have arrested and charged a man with aggravated assault after they say he assaulted a mounted police officer and his horse during a Philadelphia Eagles Tailgate on Sunday.

Andrew Tornetta is arrested Sunday after allegedly punching a Pennsylvania State Police horse outside Lincoln Financial Field.


The first incident came after a fan was ejected from the Eagles divisional road playoff game. Police report few arrests amid the Eagles' 38-7 win over the Minnesota Vikings.

While mounted atop the horse, police say the Corporal began to escort Tornetta away from the crowd, again telling him to leave. They say the Corporal gave verbal commands for everyone to leave the area, however, one person refused. That's when police say he became verbally combative.

Video obtained by NJ.com shows a bloodied and shirtless Andrew Tornetta, 19, being taken into police custody hours before the Philadelphia Eagles beat the Minnesota Vikings 38-7 to earn a trip to take on the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII on February 4.

That's when the man allegedly punched the corporal's horse twice on the right front shoulder, and hit the corporal in the face, before allegedly shedding some identifying garments and walking away into the crowd to flee, police said. Fellow mounted patrol officers took him into custody.

Taylor Hendricks, 22, of Lehigh Valley, was charged with aggravated assault, trespassing and taunting a police animal, officials said.

Hours before kickoff, Andrew Tornetta, 19, of North Wales, Pa., allegedly scuffled with a state trooper and the horse he rode on in the Lincoln Financial Field parking lot. The newspaper reports that a fan who was kicked out of the divisional round playoff on January 13 allegedly punched a horse in the face and neck on the way out. He was subsequently arrested.
