CLEVELAND (AP) - A loose police horse conducted an unscheduled patrol through downtown Cleveland before officers recaptured it.

Cleveland police spokesman Sgt. Ali Pillow said Jack, a horse with the department’s mounted unit, was tied up at Erie Street Cemetery when he got loose about 3:30 p.m. Wednesday.

The Northeast Ohio Media Group reports (https://bit.ly/1FWy3hO ) that Jack galloped through Playhouse Square, then headed toward Lake Erie.

Police caught up with Jack as he headed east on Superior Avenue.

Pillow said there were no reports of injuries or property damage. Officers said Jack stayed on the street during his escape but didn’t stop at red lights.
