Charges Dropped Against T-Rex Who Scared Horses

Charleston city prosecutors on Wednesday dropped charges of disorderly conduct and wearing a mask on a public street against Nicole Wells, stemming from a May 2017 incident. Charleston Police said Wells stepped in front of a carriage hauling 16 sightseers and growled while wearing a Tyrannosaurus rex costume. ... The carriage operator fell out of the carriage when the horses reportedly lurched backward out of fright. One of the carriage's wheels broke the driver's right foot. None of the passengers were hurt. Palmetto Carriage Works general manager Tommy Doyle says the company is considering a lawsuit against Wells. ... "I didn't hear (growling)," said Shelby Salvador, a Jacksonville tourist dining just feet from the incident.


Careful of the link - it opens a full-page ad instead.

This reminds me of Marco Polo expressing that the ones he saw in 1271 pulling the Chinese emperors coach were absolutely terrifying to horses in particular.

I think he should consider a lawsuit against the carriage wheel.

Or maybe the creator of the defective horses.

What a crock

Where was Trump at this time? Playing golf no doubt. The costume was made in China, coincidence? I don't think so. #collusion.

A guy defending a racist and traitor is a racist and traitor himself.
Please deport yourself from this country.

Stupid hipsters thought he'd be the coolest kid on the playground if he could scare a horse.

I hope the company takes everything he has.
