2 Amish men flee from deputies after buggy pulled over with stereo system, 12-pack on roof


Two Amish men ran into the woods while their horse and buggy continued down the road when deputies pull them over.

Sheriff’s deputies in Trumbull County, Ohio, pulled over the buggy – complete with beer and a large stereo system – around 1 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 15, WKBN First News 27 reports.

The men were drinking a 12-pack of Michelob Ultra that was settled atop the buggy while blasting music and riding through North Bloomfield, Ohio, deputies said. There were several open bottles in the buggy.

The Amish community is generally known for shunning high technology and typically avoids alcohol.

While the men ran into the trees, the horse continued down the road, police said. The horse and buggy were eventually caught. The buggy was towed while the horse was turned over to someone who can take care of it until the owners come forward.

A traditional Christian group, the Amish have Swiss-German Anabaptist roots in 16th century Europe. They are know for living simply, plain clothing and a reluctance to use modern conveniences and technology – including large speakers.
