This is another example of failed leadership at the Sheriff's office really because the horse got spooked by fireworks this guy gets charged and later indicted. seems he wasn't trying to intentionally harm anyone and it seems plenty of officials knew beforehand that the fireworks were a part of the show. Just more bs from a leaderless sheriff department trying to save face

ohcwby, I wasn't there but believe this was part of a show, correct. The deputy should have known that there was going to be loud noises. It just seems everybody wants to sue somebody these days. Just plain sad. I wouldn't blame this man if he never did anything in Ohio again to entertain. Maybe the sheriff should train his deputies before he puts them on a horse.

Seems to me like retaliation from the Sheriff dept. being angry about their deputy getting hurt. I have no knowledge to contribute about County Fair protocol but if your horse is afraid of loud noises the Fair is probably the wrong place to take it...

Js you're a jackwagon. If the horse and deputy can't stand the heat then stay out of the kitchen. If you had been there you would have seen also. But glad you weren't and hopefully you continue to stay away.

That's the type of hill rod mentality you'll find visiting the Trumbull Co. Fair... Blame the deputy not the idiot who set off the fireworks .

I have horses and I was witness to this whole mess as it happened. Although I feel bad that the Deputy that he got hurt, he should of never been allowed to have had a horse like that around a crowd. Quite simply this was not a well trained horse, had it been he should of been able to shoot his gun off this horse after all he is a deputy....ell trained horses will stand there and are literally bomb proof fire works should not scare a horse, this isnt the first time the fair has had problems with the sheriff dept, years ago one deputy ran into a 4H kid with HIS HORSE an they got kicked out of the horse barns at that end of the fair so...
