Eluding the police while driving a buggy

Linky to Article

It takes a brave and very silly boy to think he can elude the police while driving a buggy.


The horse must be a saint though.

Silly kid.

Yep - car or buggy - rules of the road are the same for everyone!

Know what this is?:

Clip, clop, clip, clop, -BANG BANG- clip, clop, clip, clop.

An Amish drive by shooting.

Ah rumspringa! I remember when I lived in MD, the young Amish would get drunked up and race their buggies up and down the back roads at night.

Everyone had lanterns and orange triangles though, so it wasn't like we couldn't see 'em.

All kidding aside, I hope the horse wasn't injured.

Yeah, the article makes me laugh out loud. And then I wonder if the horse was OK.

I have to assume that the news people would not have left out that little bit of information if the horse was hurt. New people like trauma so they certainly do not leave it out if it was there.

Do you suppose his parents baled him out of left him there?

Well, drunk and disorderly are misdemeanors, but fleeing from police is a little more serious.

I doubt his parents bailed him out. Hamish is probably in for a tongue lashing and some major chores out in the hot sunshine when he gets home. Hopefully while he's hungover.

Oh dear, poor horse, but....bwahahahaha....

I would pay good money to hear that police call in to dispatch....

"pulling over an amish buggy, ran a stop sign..."

"driver is failing to pull over and stop..."

"what's he doing?"

"erm....I THINK he's trying to outrun us....."

"We are following the buggy down <whatever> street at speeds of about 20 miles per hour".

You have to admit, any horse that would keep its cook with the sirens and lights going has to be a pretty good animal.

Indy, I'm sure the cops were just howling while they were in that 'high speed' 20 mph. Chase with buggy boy.

I'm sure it made the rounds of the station later, and everyone had a good laugh.

Yes y'all, cops talk about their stupid criminals. If you don't want to be talked about, don't get arrested.

Didn't we have a thread recently where someone claimed that the Amish did not have follow any of the laws...they were exempt or something?

I think this article proves otherwise.... giggle. "high speed" chase with a buggy. Giggle.
