An Amish man was arrested for drunken buggy driving Sunday.
Police found 22-year-old Elmer Stolzfoos Fisher of Paradise, Pa., asleep at the reins while his horse continued to stroll down the road pulling the inebriated man and carriage, reports lancasteronline.com.
Fisher blew a 0.18 on a breathalyzer — more than twice the legal limit – after an off-duty policeman drove up behind the slow-moving buggy that was straddling the center line of North Ronks Road.
Off-duty Quarryville police officer Jesse Blank surmised that something was wrong and stopped his car. His passenger, Nate Perry, walked up to the wandering buggy, stopped the horse and saw Fisher sleeping. He banged on the vehicles’ door until Fisher woke up, reeking of alcohol.
East Lampeter Township police arrested Fisher on charges of driving under the influence.
