Moment police officer on horse chases down driver texting

Telegraph, 17 Mar 2023
This is the moment a man using his phone while driving was caught - by two police on horseback.

Police video shows officers on horses on patrol when they spot the man speaking on his mobile.

One copper says: "He was on his phone - there he goes he's on his phone. That silver car."

They then gallop after the silver Land Rover Freelander in Taunton, Somerset - and pull him over.

One officer tells him: "You know you shouldn't be using your phone."

The man replies: "No, no music. I have a problem."

But the police officer points out there is a conversation going on and he was fined.
