Four Amish youth have been arrested on alcohol-possession charges in western New York state after a sheriff’s patrol car hit a buggy while responding to a report of underage drinking, according to a report in the Buffalo News.
Chautauqua County deputies told the newspaper that several containers of alcoholic beverages were found in two buggies, including the one that flipped. A passenger in the buggy suffered minor injuries. Deputies said other buggies fled the scene.
The buggy was hit after two of the vehicles switched lanes as the patrol car approached, added the Erie (PA) Times-News.
The driver, 20, of the overturned buggy was charged with unlawfully dealing with a child. Deputies say he had allegedly been hosting the illegal drinking party.
