Amish man charged with driving buggy drunk
#1
ROSSITER, Indiana County (AP) — State police have charged a Pennsylvania Amish
man with driving his buggy while drunk as two of his four passengers rode on the roof.

Police also have cited 18-year-old Robert Miller, of Punxsutawney, and his four
friends who were riding with him with underage drinking. The four ranged in age
from 16 to 20.

The charges, announced Wednesday, stem from the police stop July 8 in Canoe
Township, Indiana County. Police say all five had been drinking and had alcoholic beverages with them.

In Pennsylvania, it’s illegal to drive if one’s blood-alcohol content is 0.08 percent or greater. For underage drinkers, the threshold is just 0.02 percent.

Online court records didn’t list attorneys for the suspects.

How can they prove they were driving? The 2,000lb horse pulling it all ultimately has the final say. You think that horse doesn't know his way home?

Some get caught, most don't. We've all been there and the Amish are no different than us. They're luck ran out.

The horse may know the way home but it won't navigate through traffic very well. The chances of the horse ending up going out in front of a vehicle is high. They want to go and if the driver doesn't use the brakes and the reins to control the animal it and the buggy will likely end up road kill.
