sev­eral horses.

Of­fi­cers from the Cov­ing­ton Po­lice Depart­ment were called to a home on Lunsford Cir­cle at 8:58 a.m. When they ar­rived, they met with the home­owner who was walk­ing By­ron Christo­pher Jor­dan to­ward the pa­trol car. When they spoke with the home­owner, they learned he had wit­nessed Jor­dan hav­ing sex with one of his horses.

Ac­cord­ing to CPD Pub­lic In­for­ma­tion Of­fi­cer Lt. Wen­dell Wagstaff, Jor­dan was wear­ing only pa­jama bot­toms which were ex­tremely dirty and had the front fly opened. He also re­port­edly had a strong odor about his per­son.

Of­fi­cers spoke with neigh­bors who had wit­nessed Jor­dan al­legedly have sex with one horse, walk away from that one and go to a sec­ond horse and have sex with it be­fore mov­ing on to the third horse, which was in the cor­ral, and be­gin hav­ing sex with that horse as well. They no­ti­fied the owner, who had to phys­i­cally pull him off the third horse.

“Wit­nesses said they fig­ured if they called 911, dispatch op­er­a­tors would just think it was a prank,” Wagstaff said.

Jor­dan was charged with giv­ing false name to an of­fi­cer and bes­tial­ity and trans­ferred to the Newton County De­ten­tion Cen­ter. He re­ceived a $3,500 bond and was bonded out on June 23, ac­cord­ing to of­fi­cials at the Newton County De­ten­tion Cen­ter. If con­victed of bes­tial­ity Jor­dan could be sen­tenced to be­tween one and five years of con­fine­ment.
