Man On Horseback Smashes Through Door For Romance
JARNOLTOWKA, Poland ~ (Croatian Times/UK Daily Mail) ~ A woman found out the hard way the chivalry isn't dead when a drunken man on horseback crashed into her home in an attempt to prove his devotion.
40-year-old Jan Rudnicki could face a five-year sentence for aggravated breaking and entry after he galloped his horse up the garden path and battered through the front door of Gosia Domoslawska's house, according to the Croatian Times. Like so many other romantic attempts, this one was allegedly concocted during a night of drinking.
Domoslawska was watching television when a shirtless Rudnicki showed up on his horse a broke down her door like a battering ram. It made her heart flutter, but more from terror than romance. Her heart dropped when she found out Rudnicki was responsible. “He’s a loon,” she told the Times, "I never fancied him before and I certainly don’t now. If this was supposed to win my heart he must be seriously off his rocker."
Mirek Nowak, a friend of Rudnicki, told the Daily Mail, "At first we thought Jan was joking, but then he went outside, climbed onto this horse which he’d ridden to the pub, and set off bare-breasted and bare-backed." Rudnicki, a divorced dad with seven children, has apologized for his actions and offered to pay for the damages done to the door, but a police spokesman said he would still be punished.
