Police To Amish: Don't Drink And Drive Horse-Drawn Buggy
LEON, N.Y. (AP) - 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 say 17-year-old Chris Slabaugh of Conewango was charged with underage possession of alcohol after he was stopped by Cattaraugus County deputies late Monday night in the town of Leon, 40 miles south of Buffalo.
Detective Nathan Root says the teen admitted drinking beer, but passed a field sobriety test.
Root says another Amish man in the buggy, 22-year-old Emanuel Miller of Conewango Valley, was charged with providing the beer. Both are scheduled to be arraigned June 22.
Patrols were stepped up after an Amish elder's property was vandalized when he confronted youths about their drinking and listening to radios.
