A woman accused of slapping a police horse outside a March rally for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump in Kansas City is scheduled to have her case heard in Municipal Court on Wednesday.
April Foster, 30, is charged with assaulting a police service animal. She is one of four people facing city charges in connection with the rally, where police released pepper spray into a crowd of protesters outside the event.
Also scheduled to appear in court over the next two months are three people cited for disorderly conduct: Kendrick Washington, 22, of Chicago; Alexander Fisher, 20, of Overland Park; and Megan Gallant, 37, of Kansas City.
Another Kansas City man, Shane Michael Stange, 28, pleaded guilty in August to disorderly conduct. He received a sentence of 30 days in jail, which was suspended. He was placed on one year’s probation and ordered to pay $48.50 in court costs.
