(Meredith) – Police officers in Jackson, Tennessee have arrested a man they said was caught on camera having sex with a horse.
According to the Jackson Sun, 30-year-old Michael Jemison entered a barn to have sex with a horse on April 29, 2018. He was caught on surveillance camera by the property owner, who called the police. A veterinarian took a DNA sample from the horse and submitted it to police as evidence.
Jemison fled the property before authorities arrived, but police said he returned again on May 5 to have sex with a white mare.
He eluded police again, but officers found his vehicle, which they used to figure out his identity, WBBJ TV reported. They compared his photo with the surveillance videos to confirm it was Jemison having sex with the animal.
When police arrested him, Jemison told police that he was at the barn because he was drunk and didn’t want to get a DUI.
He was charged with two counts of sexual activity with an animal, evading arrest, and two counts of burglary. The Jackson Sun also reported that Jemison is listed on the Tennessee Sexual Offender Registry for exploitation of a minor by electronic means back in 2010.
