CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- A fed-up Cook County judge on Wednesday warned Adam Hollingsworth, better known as the Dreadhead Cowboy, that he’ll be going to trial at the end of next month whether he’s ready or not.

Hollingsworth, 34, is representing himself against a charge of animal cruelty stemming from a horseback ride he took last summer on the Dan Ryan Expressway to raise awareness about violence against youth. Hollingsworth said he was prepared for trial even though he has yet to serve subpoenas to several witnesses he plans to have testify on his behalf, including Mayor Lori Lightfoot.
