REPORT: Alleged Eagles Fan Who Punched Horse Is Suing Eagles And Philadelphia Police

Prior to the 2018 NFC Championship Game between the Minnesota Vikings and Philadelphia Eagles on January 21st outside Lincoln Financial Field, an Eagles fan was video tapped getting arrested by Philly police.
The man behind the incident is Andrew Tornetta, who at the time was accused of punching a police horse with a closed fist twice while mounted officers were attempting to break up a violent tailgating brawl.
But according to Tornetta, those allegations are false, claiming he was innocently hanging out when mounted by cops.
According to the lawsuit obtained by TMZ Sports:

In the lawsuit, Tornetta says at least two cops unsheathed their batons and began beating him multiple times — and he suffered serious injuries to his back, skull and face. 

Tornetta says cops then provided a misleading statement to investigators — saying he punched the horse — when in fact, he never intentionally struck anyone … human or equine. 

On top of the injuries, Tornetta says he was “demonized on social media and internet sites reporting upon his assault on police and his cruelty towards an animal.”

Tornetta is suing the two cops involved (a State Trooper and a Philly PD officer) and the Eagles organization — claiming the security officers weren’t properly trained.

Tornetta was charged with resisting arrest, failure to disperse and disorderly conduct but all charges were later dropped after he completed 12 hours of community service.
