Four Amish youth have been arrested on alcohol-possession charges in western New York state after a sheriff's patrol car hit a buggy while responding to a report of underage drinking, The Buffalo News reports.

Chautauqua County deputies say several containers of alcoholic beverages were found in two buggies, including the one that flipped. A passenger in the buggy suffered minor injuries.

Deputies say other buggies fled the scene, The News reports.

The buggy was hit after two of the vehicles switched lanes as the patrol car approached, the Erie Times-News reports.

The 20-year-old driver of the overturned buggy was charged with unlawfully dealing with a child. Deputies say he had allegedly been hosting the illegal drinking party, the Times-News says.

How do Amish parents ground their under-aged kids after something like this?
Its not like you can take their video games away or cut off their TV. :cold:

Actually, Amish kids have until, I think, age 21 to make the commitment to remain with the ordnung. If not, they are shunned from the community.

"There'll be no barn raising for thee, young man!"

My question is, is it illegal to operate a buggy under the influence? You don't need a license to drive one, so it's not like they can take points off.

I just had this image of an Amish tazer. Basically, they force the kid to hold a kite string in a thunderstorm. :biggrin-new:

Where I live, the cops can and do bust people for dui on bicycles, electric scooters, and probably skateboards.

I don't know what the laws are now. A long time ago, I found some old Tombstone Arizona police records. One mentioned someone being arrested for 'reckless buggy driving.' Another was a guy arrested for 'riding a horse in a dangerous manner while intoxicated.'

Course, there were no cars in those days.

I assumed that Budweiser had pioneered the rocket-propelled horse.
