The woman who was charged after a pair of Charleston carriage horses was spooked by a dinosaur costume was scheduled to be in court on Monday, according to the city’s Municipal Court docket.
The driver with Palmetto Carriage Works was thrown from the carriage and broke his foot when the horses attempted to back up and the carriage jackknifed and hit a car, News 2 said.
Neither the passengers nor the horses were injured.
At the time of the May 18 incident, Charleston police spokesman Charles Francis said in a statement that the person in the T. rex costume was seen growling at the horses, though witness’ statements varied, according to ABC 4 News.
A 26-year-old West Ashley woman later turned herself in to police, Live 5 News reported.
She faces disorderly conduct charges along with charges of wearing a mask or disguise, which is illegal on Charleston streets except in certain circumstances like traditional holidays or theatrical productions. The Island Packet and The Beaufort Gazette typically does not identify people charged with misdemeanors.
