A Bangor police officer is credited with lassoing a race horse that escaped from its stall at the Hollywood Casino Racetrack. Officer Kris Beck told WMTW-TV that the call about a horse trotting around a city neighborhood came in early Wednesday. Officer Jose Vidaurri made a lasso out a piece of rope from his cruiser and placed it around the horse’s neck after officers cornered it in a driveway. The horse did not seem too disturbed by the events that transpired after escaping from its stall at Hollywood Casino Racetrack.
