You don't see this every day...

Getaway foiled when horse and buggy crash

An Amish boy who tried to flee police faces charges of alcohol possession and "overdriving an animal" after he crashed his getaway vehicle -- a horse and buggy.

Cattaraugus County sheriff's deputies today said 17-year-old Levi E. Detweiler ran a stop sign and refused officers' attempts to stop the buggy. Deputies chased Detweiler for about three quarters of a mile, and when he tried an unsafe turn into a driveway, he crashed the horse and buggy in a ditch. The boy then fled on foot but was found later in the area.
He was interviewed by detectives, who charged him with possession of alcohol by someone under 21, overdriving an animal, second-degree reckless endangerment, failure to stop at a stop sign and failure to yield to an emergency vehicle in the incident that occurred about 1:30 a.m. July 12.

That "overdriving an animal"charge will get you every time. I hate when that happens. They should let him go just because his name is Levi. I wonder if he'll share a court date with the Lancaster guy caught driving drunk on his lawn mower?...
