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?

I feel sorry for the kid for having his picture taken with that haircut.
I was reminded of an old Amish joke. What goes clop, clop, bang, clop, clop? An Amish drive by shooting.
Weird Al’s “Amish Paradise” really mashed-up with Coolio’s “Ganstas Paradise”
Should it be the Menace of the Mennonites or Impish Amish. . . .
Once he’s released his chore load is going to increase dramatically.
An example over-driving an animal:
Worse, he had to have his picutre taken. Both Amish and Mennonites believe photos are a symbol of self-admiration and pride, contrary to their beliefs and way of life.
