When Amish Kids Go Bad

In Leon, New York, Levi Detweiler, 17, allegedly took police on a chase leading to a crash and arrest. Just another joy-riding crazy teen? Not exactly, the vehicle was a horse and buggy and Detweiler is an Amish boy who was fleeing the cops for an unknown reason in a very slow getaway.

The Cattaraugus County Sheriff’s deputies tried to pull over the horse and buggy for not making a complete stop. That is when Detweiler floored it . . . I mean whipped it. He ended up in a ditch with an overturned buggy a while later.

To make matters worse he has been charged with underage possession of alcohol (a no-no under the Ordnung of the Mennonites) as well as over-driving an animal, reckless endangerment, failure to stop at a stop sign and failure to yield to an emergency vehicle.

I knew this would happen after Harrison Ford spent time with the Amish.

By the way, if you can over-drive an animal, can you under-drive an animal?
