TORONTO – Saying “it’s now or never,” loose cannon Toronto Police Services horse constable Freckles has abandoned his surveillance team in pursuit of a mid-level drug dealer from the Barksdale Organization.
“Goddamnit, Freckles!” yelled Sgt. Avey DeSousa throwing off his headphones from the surveillance van when the 1,200 pound police horse jumped out in hot pursuit. “This tap hasn’t been approved by the Crown Attorney yet!”
The seven-year equine veteran who used to work homicide before being assigned to a special detail is known to be an excellent investigator, but won’t hesitate to play by his own rules.
“I’m gonna get this son-of-a-bitch!” a panting Freckles told his partner in full gallop. “He’ll lead me right to the Greek.”
Freckles has already received several warnings from his superiors about insubordination, disdain for authority, and grazing in parks. His Superintendent has already threatened to transfer the overly-arrogant horse to the Marine Unit if he doesn’t shape up.
According to sources, Freckles is dreading a meeting with the superintendent tomorrow about his recent behavior, but not before he has a secret meeting with union leader Frank Sobotka at Toronto Harbour.
