Bahahaha! You can’t make this kind of stuff up, can you?
An Amish teen was charged with alcohol possession and “overdriving an animal” after crashing a horse and buggy while fleeing police in New York, officials say.
Cattaraugus County sheriff’s deputies allege Levi E. Detweiler, 17, ran a stop sign 1:30 a.m. July 12 and refused officers’ commands to stop his buggy, The Buffalo (N.Y.) News reported Monday.
Deputies pursued Detweiler for almost a mile before the teen careened into a ditch after making too sharp of a turn into a driveway. Detweiler ran away but was later found in the area, the News said.
He has been charged with possession of alcohol by someone under 21, over-driving an animal, second degree reckless endangerment, failure to stop at a stop sign and failure to yield to an emergency vehicle.
The minds-eye pictures playing out in my head have me rolling on the floor!
