Horse soring defendant surrenders pre-trial bond

CHATTANOOGA. (AP) - A defendant in a Tennessee horse soring case has surrendered his pre-trial bond and been locked up in response to a video that shows him building a block to affect a horse's gait and being present when a plate and bolt were inserted in a horse's foot area.

A U.S. magistrate in Chattanooga ordered 38-year-old Barney Davis of Lewisburg detained Thursday and set an Aug. 11 bond revocation hearing.

Prosecutors seeking to revoke Davis's bond contend in a statement that he violated court-ordered conditions of his remaining free, including the training and soring of horses.

Davis and three others have pleaded not guilty to charges that include violating the federal Horse Protection Act.

Soring involves irritating a horse's foreleg and hoof to force the animal to walk with a certain gait.

    TESTED: Best bets for booster seats

    Tuesday, November 21 2017 4:11 AM EST2017-11-21 09:11:10 GMT

    The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has tested 16 new booster seats for 2017, all but 3 have earned the agency's highest rating of "best bet." 

    The "best bet" rating means a booster provides a good safety belt fit for a typical 4 to 8 year old child in almost any car, minivan or SUV.
