Amish Teen Leads Cops on Drunken Buggy ChaseS

You have to be pretty stupid, or pretty drunk, to lead the police on a car chase. You have to even drunker, and certainly more Amish, to lead the police on a car-vs.-horse-and-buggy chase.

Or maybe just brave. Lewis D. Hostetler,17, of Cattaraugus County, N.Y., was spotted by police at 1 a.m. drinking beer in his buggy. He led the cops on a "short chase"—we'll bet—but eventually pulled over in order to be arrested and charged with

resisting arrest, second-degree obstructing governmental administration, unlawful possession of an alcoholic beverage with intent to consume by a person under age 21, failure to yield to an emergency vehicle, insufficient tail lamps and littering on a highway.

Why do we tolerate the Amish, who are frequently trying to outrun the police and sext our children? The answer: Scrapple.
