BETHLEHEM, Pa. (AP) — Police say a man slapped a police horse twice, once after he was warned, during Bethlehem's Musikfest.

The Express-Times of Easton reported Monday that 22-year-old Curtis Gibbs of Allentown was charged with disorderly conduct after the incident Saturday night.

State police and Bethlehem police horses are being used to patrol Musikfest.

Police say the trooper at first warned Gibbs, then cited him after he slapped the horse a second time.

A phone listing couldn't be located for Gibbs.

Musikfest began last weekend and continues through Sunday.
