    The newscaster (or the writer) is a retard. She says he depends on his mules, "pulled by a covered wagon."

    OK, watching the video the newscaster couldn't keep it together. Personally I died laughing when I read they had to taser him to get out of wagon.

    Beautiful, well-kept mules. I highly doubt that he rammed the police car intentionally. Sirens on, boxing him in, made the mules nervous.

    No dash cam on the cop car? That I would like to see. I find it plausible that the whole thing was accidental due to the mules spooking rather than deliberate evasion/attack by the driver, but who knows? The mules do look good in the video shown!

    If the dash cam is missing the mules and the mule mas were the victims of tazer happy bully cops who probably instigated the whole fiasco.

    Taser happy bully cops huh? How about the guy obviously lying. He tells the reporter of course he wasn't drunk, "I don't even drink!" But admits in the police report of having a few beers.

    Hmmm.

    Not every agency has dash cams. My agency does, but the county does not. Just sayin'.

    ASSuming (ha ha ha, get it, they are mules) that he was alone in the wagon, who would have held the heads of the mules?

    I am also surprised that he is not being charged with animal abuse, if he did use the mules as a battering ram.

    I got the impression that the wagon did the ramming, not that the mules had any contact with the car.
