A Texas man who broke his leg while trying to have sex with a horse earlier this year has been arrested.
Cirilo Castillo Jr., 45, has a long history of performing sexual acts on horses. He was found with a broken leg in a barn in Edinburg, Texas, at about 7 am on February 17.
The barn’s owner, who has not been named, had previously warned Castillo to stay away from her property, after an earlier arrest for having sex with one of her horses. However, she found Castillo in one of the stables when she went to feed her horses in the morning. (Scroll down for the video.)
1. Cirilo Castillo, 45, was arrested on June 2 in Edinburg, Texas, for a February incident in which he broke his leg while attempting to have sex with a horse.
Castillo told the horse’s owner and the officers that he was hit by a car and crawled to the barn for shelter, but police believe that he was kicked by a horse, The Houston Chronicle reports.
Castillo was taken to the hospital for treatment following the incident.
On June 2, Hidalgo County investigators took Castillo into custody for the charge of criminal trespassing.
The 45-year-old faces up to 180 days in jail for the Class B misdemeanor, if convicted. He was arraigned on June 3 and Hidalgo County Justice of the Peace Charlie Espinoza set his bond at $1,000.
2. Castillo has previously served two sentences for sexual incidents with horses.
This is not Castillo’s first trouble with the law. He has previously served two sentences for sexual incidents with horses (see the video below).
In June 2013, Castillo tied up a horse named Nadia and performed sexual acts with her. He was convicted on the offense of cruelty to animals and received five years probation.
Then the horse’s owner noticed that the man repeatedly sought the same horse and installed a surveillance camera into her corral. Hidalgo County Sheriff Lupe Trevino said:
We have a hell of a surveillance tape. It is not going to go to, America’s Funniest Videos, that is for sure.
In 2012, Castillo served 270 days in jail for public lewdness over an incident which also involved a horse.
