A three-hour car chase, narrow trails, rugged terrain, stealing a horse and riding it through the desert sounds like something between an old western film and a Fast and Furious film.
The incident ended with an ineffective tazoring due to loose clothing and a beating from police on 30-year-old Francis Pusok.
San Bernardino County Sheriff Jon McHahon said there would be an internal investigation as it is seen from a KNBC Channel 4 helicopter that they captured the chase and beating.
Pusok was transported the hospital and his injuries were not given. Three deputies involved were also transported to the hospital – two for dehydration and one that was kicked by the horse. The horse had numerous injuries to its legs but has been returned to its rightful owner.
