New Orleans Mounted Police Pursues Suspect On Busy Street

If you’ve never seen New Orleans police’s mounted unit in action, here’s your chance.

A unit from the New Orleans Mounted Police took part in a pursuit near the always-crowded Bourbon Street.

The footage shows Sgt. Daniel Scanlan and horse JJ chasing, and eventually arresting, a suspect in the French. The suspect, 30-year-old Terrell Spears, was arrested and booked on a count of possession of a firearm by a felon and flight from an officer.

Scanlan was in the French Quarter to film a promotional video when he got the call to respond to the incident.

During the chase, Scanlan is heard yelling out for French Quarter revelers to “move” and “look out” as he speeds through the area.
