ORLANDO, Fla.,None —

WFTV obtained video of a disturbing incident in downtown Orlando where a man allegedly punched and injured a police horse during the All-Star weekend.

The video was posted on YouTube.

A mounted Osceola County sheriff's deputy was clearing pedestrian traffic after the All-Star game when police say Josue Santana pulled the police horse down to its nose.

The horse named "Shamrock" injured its front leg, and officials aren't sure if it will be able to return to work.

Santana was arrested, but has since bonded out.
