How long can you avoid pursuing police in a horse buggy?
Did you know that some Amish kids have the best adventures in the world. Don’t believe us? Get your in your horse buggy and follow us…before the police catch us that is.
Gawker: This is Levi Detweiler, a 17-year-old kid arrested following a police chase last week and charged with possession of alcohol and reckless endangerment. And “overdriving an animal.” See, he’s Amish, and he was driving a horse and buggy.
After leading the police on a one-mile chase, he failed to take a sharp turn and ended up in a ditch, escaping on foot.
First of is it legal for Amish kids to get drunk, and if so why is Levi running around in a horse buggy in a state of disrepair? Is this one of those bored things Amish kids do? Or better still is this one of those rite of passages things 17 year kids like to do so they can tell their parish they feel kinship to media whores like Lilo? Did Levi even think to alert the paparazzi before he set off on his adventure, that way he can tell his future kids he was once an Amish media whore? I know I am always thinking of calling the local TV station every time I get in the mood for scandal.
Following a week-long investigation, Detweiler was arrested and charged with “underage possession of alcohol, overdriving an animal, reckless endangerment, failure to stop at a stop sign and failure to yield to an emergency vehicle.” He is currently in jail on a $500 bond.
$500? I wonder how much it’s going to cost to replace Levi’s broken buggy machine? Anyway now that Levi has had his bout of fame he can go back to living in a dark room. I bet it’s next to impossible riding a horse buggy slothered in alcohol in a candle lit room, but who knows maybe that’ll be Levi’s return performance when he turns 21.
