 A Shreveport man has been arrested after he filed a horse theft complaint against a Shreveport police officer who merely attempted to rescue his thirsty and starving horse.

The Inquisitor has just learned that Rudolph Glass, Jr., 48, of the 1400 block of Clay Street in Shreveport was arrested earlier today by Louisiana Brand Commission Agent Carney Burcham on a charge of misdemeanor cruelty to animals.

Shreveport Police Officer Christian Hicks was put on paid administrative leave earlier this week after Hicks responded to a animal cruelty call that eventually led Hicks to providing Glass' horse with water and after contacting a couple to rescue the horse until Glass could be found.

Glass filed a complaint with Shreveport Police which resulted in Hicks being placed on leave until the matter could be sorted out.

Glass was released after being issued a misdemeanor summons to appear in Caddo District Court to face the charge.  The summons is now in the hands of the Caddo Parish District Attorney's Office who will prosecute the case and who ordered the arrest of Glass.

State agents were considering charging Glass with filing a false police report, however Glass claims he never reported the horse as being stolen.
