Oklahoma State Fair: Oklahomans protest to free free circus performer
Oklahoman Oklahomasans are rallying to free circus entertainer Gary Horsley.
The Oklahoma City-based circus company announced on Twitter late Sunday that it had agreed to pay Horsleys $2.2 million in damages.
The move comes as Horskins’ attorneys filed an amicus brief in a lawsuit challenging the company’s termination.
Horsley is accused of assaulting a woman in October and then threatening her with a knife at a Tulsa carnival last month.
The Tulsa Police Department said Horski was arrested after the incident.HORSLEY’S attorney, Jason Farkas, has said the charges are false and that Horsler has not assaulted anyone.
