Amish Teen Leads Cops on Drunken Buggy Chase

Illustration for article titled Amish Teen Leads Cops on Drunken Buggy Chase

You have to be pretty stupid, or pretty drunk, to lead the police on a car chase. You have to even drunker, and certainly more Amish, to lead the police on a car-vs.-horse-and-buggy chase.


Or maybe just brave. Lewis D. Hostetler,17, of Cattaraugus County, N.Y., was spotted by police at 1 a.m. drinking beer in his buggy. He led the cops on a "short chase"—we'll bet—but eventually pulled over in order to be arrested and charged with

resisting arrest, second-degree obstructing governmental administration, unlawful possession of an alcoholic beverage with intent to consume by a person under age 21, failure to yield to an emergency vehicle, insufficient tail lamps and littering on a highway.

Why do we tolerate the Amish, who are frequently trying to outrun the police and sext our children? The answer: Scrapple.

Troll is English for Troll

Alright, the last one is just plain stupid. They're Amish, they can't drive cars because it's against their beliefs. In their simple ways of life, and their occasional isolation from the modern world, I really don't think that any of these should be charged against him.
