Authorities in western New York say they’ve charged four young Amish adults with illegal possession of alcohol after their buggy collided with a police car responding to a report of a drinking party under way.
The Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office tells media outlets that the crash occurred around 7:15 Sunday in the rural town of Sherman, near the Pennsylvania border in New York’s southwest corner.
Officials say deputies were responding to reports that people were drinking in several Amish buggies on a country road.
As a patrol car arrived on the scene, one of the Amish buggies changed lanes, colliding with the police vehicle. The buggy flipped onto its side, causing minor injuries to one of the people on board.
Police say several other buggies fled the scene.
No, you really cannot make this stuff up.

Good heavens. What is this world coming to if we can’t even depend on the Amish to be true and virtuous? [snark]


Ok, not even kidding…..My husband has that T-shirt!! Hahaha….that’s why it’s so funny! Never thought it would actually happen. Go figure!

The cider must be gettin’ a tad hard by this time of the year.

I live in Amish country. There is absolutely nothing surprising about that story.
Except perhaps the buggies getting away (?)
Amish children do not become full members of the church until adulthood. Before church acceptance and marriage, they are free to experience the world as they wish, give or take compliance with their parents’ rules. Buggies blasting rap music on boomboxes are not that uncommon, although I heard of kids getting whupped for it later.
