Amish Man Arrested for DUI / Drunk Driving While Driving Buggy
Police in East Lampeter Township, Pennsylvania, arrested a 22 year old man this past weekend for DUI / Drunk Driving after he was found asleep in his moving buggy. The horse drawn buggy was moving slowly, at a walking pace, as it was straddling the center line. The sleeping driver/rider was given a breath test with the results being 0.18%, more than twice the legal limit of 0.08% in Pennsylvania. I can see the defense now-the horse was driving the buggy! The alleged sleeping driver was just along for the ride. I wonder if the horse was tested for alcohol and/or drugs. Apparently, the horse was driving the buggy and sleeping passenger straight down the road.
