ORLANDO, Fla. - A man is facing charges for punching a swan at Lake Eola Park.
Orlando police arrested Sor Angel Velez yesterday evening.
Investigators say that two off duty officers saw Velez punch a mother swan who was defending her babies.
One of the officers was so upset that she took pictures of the swan and of Velez.
The officers say Velez tried to run away, but didn’t get far.
He was captured and arrested.
He’s charged with injuring wildlife.
He’s being held in the Orange County jail and should face a judge Monday morning.
