Kids these days. Give them the keys to the horse and carriage, and they go wild.
Levi Detweiler, a 17-year-old Amish kid from Leon, N.Y., allegedly ran a stop sign in his horse and buggy, leading authorities on a mile-long low-speed chase.
Detweiler took a sharp turn too fast and turned the buggy over, rolling it into a ditch, police said. He then got out and fled on foot.
It took the Cattaraugus County Sheriff's Office a week to investigate the incident, which ended with Levi being charged with underage possession of alcohol, reckless endangerment, over-driving an animal, failure to stop at a stop sign and failure to yield to an emergency vehicle.
And, yes, "over-driving an animal" is an actual crime.
