Watch the moment a fan was hit by a horse ridden by a policeman during violent clashes after FC Twente’s home game against PSV Eindhoven.
The riots were apparently sparked by police investigating fans for drug trafficking at the match, at least according to this tweet:

And one unfortunate man, seemingly a bystander, was taken out by a charging police horse during the ugly scenes.
At the time of writing there are no reports of anyone incurring any serious injuries, so hopefully the man is okay.
However, there have also been reports that one policeman was assaulted after falling from his horse:

The match itself ended in a 2-2 draw with Kosovo midfielder Bersant Celina, on loan at Twente from Manchester City, equalising in the last minute to seriously dent PSV’s title challenge.
