Trumbull Co. sheriff’s deputies pull over Amish buggy with stereo system
13 hours ago

Excerpt:

NORTH BLOOMFIELD, Ohio (WKBN) — Deputies said they pulled over an Amish buggy complete with alcohol and a stereo system early Sunday morning.

Just before 1 a.m., Trumbull County sheriff’s deputies said they saw two Amish men drinking alcohol while riding on the back of a horse and buggy.

The deputies said there was a 12-pack of Michelob Ultra on top of the buggy.

They pulled the buggy over at Donley and Mahan Parker Roads in North Bloomfield, Ohio.

Deputies said the people riding in it ran out into the trees while the horse continued down the road.

Michelob Ultra? Sounds awful. InBev is missing a golden advertising opportunity. They better jump while the fire is still hot.

I lived on Trubull County Ohio a long time ago (Kinsman). Amish all over the place. They are part og the Geauga Amish group which tend to be a little looser in their rules. Nice folks...

Green Bay is very close to an Amish community, trust me, you'd be surprised.

Is it illegal to operate a horse and buggy while drinking? I wonder what drew the cops attention. Couldn’t have been speeding.

Outright and for most no, not exactly as it is not classified as a motor vehicle. BUT, as this happened on a public road and buggies have to display D.O.T. approved slow moving signs they could be arrested for public intox, endangerment, operating in an unsafe manner and a few other things like that. Not sure if it would be an outright D.W.I./D.U.I. though. As this type of thing is all but un heard of it's kinda' a grey area and I am not sure that there is an established law or rule that directly addresses it. I have heard of cases where someone was riding a hoarse drunk(the rider not the hoarse) and they where arrested for being intoxicated/disorderly conduct etc. While most might find this funny, think of what can happen if the operator decides to drive in the middle of a busy road and a motor vehicle does not seem them. Hitting a Deer is bad enough, know you are dealing with a hoarse(which is much much larger and heavier) plus a buggy. Extremely dangerous.

It is illegal to operate any type of conveyance on a public road while under the influence of alcohol. This includes bicycles, riding lawn mowers, and livestock. I have stories for each named...

Old Dogs and Children and Watermelon Wine.

I like Beer

Can it be a DWI if it's Michelob Ultra?

I dunno about Ohio, But in Indiana buggies are exempt. Because the law is written such that ANTYHING under 'x' horsepower is exempt. And what are buggies? Like - LITERALLY - 2 Horse Power or so?

In Indiana there's what's called DUI scooters - Pronounced "Dewey Scooters". If you get your license yanked for DUI, you can only drive 'exempt' vehicles on public roads, those under 'x' HP. I think it's 5 HP but I could be wrong. And you're not allowed on interstates; there's a minimum hp for interstates.

If you drive through Indiana and see middle age guys on Vespas putt-putt-ing down a country road, that's your typical "Dewey Scooter". And I've got several uncles and cousins that between them all probably kept the central Indiana Vespa dealership in business.
