NOLENSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) _ An enraged horse known for being unruly kicked a man to death.

Sheriff's Sgt. Robert Dillon said Tuesday that Billy Camron, believed to be 64, suffered severe injuries to his head, back and other parts of his body and also had several bite marks.

Dillon quoted Camron's son as saying ``it was just a mean horse.''

Deputies said they found the horse running ``rampant in the field'' when they arrived Monday night.

The son authorized the horse to be killed.

Nolensville is about 20 miles southeast of Nashville.
