It screams like a story from the National Enquirer, but unfortunately it is a story direct from The Associated Press.
Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw were arrested in Buffalo, NY after Chesney ran away with a Mounted Reserve deputy's horse, and McGraw attacked deputies that tried to corral him.
Apparently Chesney asked to sit on the horse outside Ralph Wilson Stadium. The daughter of the deputy gave him permission to do so. Then Chesney mounted the horse and rode away. He was told to stop, but ignored the orders from the other deputies. These deputies were then attacked by McGraw and members of his entourage.
Chesney was charged with disorderly conduct and released on $100 bail.
McGraw was charged with second-degree assault, obstructing governmental administration, menacing and resisting arrest. He was released on $2,500 bail.
