HOUSTON, Dec. 2 (UPI) -- A Houston man who allegedly struck a police horse outside a Houston Texans game has been charged with interference with a police service animal.

Harris County sheriff's deputies said Sgt. Richard Castillo briefly lost control of his horse after it allegedly was struck on the hindquarters by Jeff Siebert, 30, outside of the game Sunday at Reliant Stadium, the Houston Chronicle reported Thursday.

The sheriff's office said the horse jumped and struck a barricade marking off a pedestrian area before Castillo, who was working an off-duty security job, was able to regain control.

Siebert was released after posting $5,000 bail. He is due in court next week.
