Outlaw Gang 'The Amish Eight' Jailed For Failing to Adhere to Basic Buggy Safety Laws

Here we have the booking photos (click to enlarge) of eight men from the Swartzentruber Amish sect, all of whom were ordered arrested and jailed on Monday by a Kentucky judge. Their crimes?

They refused to affix little orange safety triangles to their horse-drawn buggies, and then refused to pay the fines they'd accrued for repeatedly failing to do so.

Their stance was a religious one: Displaying bright colors runs against their laws (and, let's face it, kinda ruins the whole rustic, old-world motif they're going for). Then again, so does posing for photographs — mugshots included — but they were forced to do so at the Graves County jail, where the men spent anywhere from three to ten days. They were spared, however, from wearing the brightly colored orange jumpsuits that are typical prisoner issue. [The Smoking Gun, mugshot via TSG]
