    THIS is why I keep saying DON'T RIDE ON OR NEAR ROADS every time we have a thread on the subject. SO SORRY for the people who's horse is dead. I have an Amish farrier and have been doing business with the Amish community one hour south of us for over 25 years. It's despicable. Shame on the the State's Attorneys if they don't pull the driver's license permanently and don't prosecute to the length of the law.

    Does anyone have any new information such as charges being filed?

    My saddle was made by an Amish saddle maker. Some of them are truly amazing craftsmen and women.

    The latest reports are that the suspect was released from the hospital before he could be taken into custody. Which is ridiculous that the police let this guy go. From all accounts there isn't a question that he was drunk or hit the Amish buggy/horse. But they just let the guy walk out?!?

    Current charges being filed on Francisco J. Gonzalez are failure to stop after a vehicle accident, operating while intoxicated, and operating a vehicle while per se intoxicated. Seriously, that's it! What a joke.

    The police have dismissed the 5 Amish boys & witness statements that it was intentional. Even though video from Walmart shows the guy making a u-turn and heading back in the direction of the Amish. The driver was drunk (.17 blood/alcohol). There was a mug shot posted of the suspect, but it was from a prior arrest.

    Are you serious, they're dismissing the statements of it being intentional? That's ridiculous! A horse isn't hard to avoid, even if you're rotten drunk.

    I wish they could have pinned the driver for attempted murder or something... Or, as horrible as this is, that one of the Amish guys were more seriously injured so that they would get hit with more charges. Is there such a thing as attempted manslaughter?

    I seriously wish that murder charges could be applied to people who kill animals.

    I don't know much about law, but I doubt the guy will end up with much more than a suspended license, fine, and slap on the wrists.
