Police: Man Charged With Having Sex With Horse

A South Carolina man has been arrested for having sex with a horse after police say the animal's owner caught him on surveillance camera.

Police say this isn't the first time 50-year-old Rodell Vereen has been charged with buggery -- last year he pleaded guilty to having sex with the same horse and was placed on the state's sex offender list.

Police arrested Vereen on Monday, when he returned to the stable 20 miles northeast of Myrtle Beach where owner Barbara Kenley says a camera caught him having sex with her horse earlier this month. This time she was waiting for him with a shotgun and says she thought about shooting him but didn't want to go to prison.

Vereen is in jail. His brother says he has mental problems and may not have been taking his medicine.

    horseman Aug 5, 6:39pm, I am cracking up. I have this vision of 50 people playing the whisper game with 2 cans tied to a very long piece of string. How in the world did it turn into a NC policeman who has been on the force for 50 years? I am seriously cracking up. One blight Latonya, that is some made up name right and you really can spell but are playing the idiot, true?

    I agree with "Horseman" ... what a shame that a 50-year North Carolina career policeman was busted for buggery with a beast.

    1. It din't say the guy was in law enforcement 2. It didn't say it happened in NC.

    Yes, it is terrible to think that a law enforcement officer would stoop to the level of this behavior. He should be ashamed and kicked off his police force!

    Was the horse male or female? Could he be bad on all accounts. Homosexual and Beastiality(sp).

    I think it's just TERRIBLE that this NC policeman has been caught doing such a thing. After 50 years on the force, Officer Verdeen should know better than that. Besides, aren't there laws against that in North Carolina?
