"but cops only agreed to release the dapple white once Mr dos Santos had agreed to cover the repair bill for the damage to the vehicle."

This is how farked up Brazil is -- the rule of law is dictated by cops who act as judge, jury and executioner
These assholes also stop motorists and demand bribes. Stay away from that place

Under Equestrian law, kicking a car falls under "Horsing Around" and is a misdemeanor.

I agree with your main point, because cops often show they're not the best judges of character and facts.  Although in this case, seems like a quick way of dealing with a civil matter.  They hold property till property damage is settled, assuming they got the right horse.  I've never been there, so maybe the cop only did this because he's friends with the car owner, where he would've 'ticketed' the car owner if he was friends with the horse owner.

If he was dapple black, they would have shot him.

Just a little horseplay so no charge. He will be told to be careful next time. Unless it's a black horse then it's the stall for him!

That horse is going to get saddled with jail time.

Nothing. The bridled horse would just pony up a few bucks for his bale.

He was only horsing around. The horse did not have to wait furlong though, even though being behind bars made him a little giddy, he was snort having any more of it. The first hurdle the police encountered was when they realised that they had simply jumped to conclusions, after which they all felt a little bit filly and they whipped out the key to let him trot away.

CSB time:

My mother was born in Ireland, daughter of a rural farrier (my grandpa Mike).  Grandpa used to go around shoeing horses, and when she was old enough, Mom would go with him and even learned how to shoe horses herself, but only the front hooves, never ever the back hooves.

She never understood that until one day when she was with grandpa out visiting a farm and while she was
playing in the farmyard with the family's children, she heard a loud whinny and a WHOOMPH, and saw
grandpa come flying through the side of the barn.

Grandpa got up, brushed himself off, and went back in and showed the horse who was boss and the
horse got shoed, and Mom never ever asked to shoe the back hooves ever again.

/Grandpa Mike was a legit badass who fought in the Irish wars for Independence.

The Brazilian Highway and Alley Patrol has established a rule that if your equine (horse, burro, whatever) frightens a vehicle driver, you must immediately disassemble the animal and hide its parts under nearby debris until the driver recovers and leaves.

So they didn't take it to court for an arreinment?
