This evening Ex-President of Colombia Alvaro Uribe fell off a horse, got kicked by the animal in the knee and was immediately taken to hospital for surgery on said joint.
Here’s the flash out of Colombia’s RCN which shows Uribe showing off by riding and holding a cup of coffee. The clip was taken just before the unscheduled dismount and leg-crappery, so no moneyshot. Unconfirmed reports of the horse’s stable being wiretapped by the DAS were immediately denied by government security forces. We’d also like to make clear that any relation between this accident and the traditional mafia culture punishment of kneecapping is purely coincidental.
