Amish DUI?

You just can't make this stuff up. Miami Herald:

Police cracking down on rowdy Amish youths ticketed a teenager for having beer in his horse-drawn buggy when they pulled him over on a western New York road. They said the 17-year-old was charged with underage possession of alcohol after he was stopped by deputies late Monday night in the town of Leon, 40 miles south of Buffalo.
My take is this: the horse already knew the way home, buggies don't have steering wheels, and since the young man passed a field sobriety test, "driving under the influence" doesn't apply. If there's a way to attend the upcoming proceedings, I'm there. It would be worth it just to hear the arresting officer's testimony.

Not Wired
