An Amish man in Ohio was the subject of a low-speed chase by police on May 14 when he slept while operating a horse and buggy.
Ashtabula Deputy Sheriff Mike Talbert tried to stop the buggy at around 2:43 a.m. in Orwell, Ohio, but was unsuccessful and told other officers that the driver of the horse and buggy looked like he was sleeping, Fox said 8th.
“There’s a Bud Light can in there and he passed out,” says Talbert. “We passed out a drunk Amish guy in a buggy.”
“He just turned east on Bogue and I yelled at the guy as he drove by,” Talbert said. “There’s a Bud Light can in the D**n buggy and I hit the side of the buggy and yelled at the guy. He passed clean. He slumped.”
Police initially responded to 911 calls from people who claimed the buggy was “all over the street.”
After chasing the horse and buggy in a slow-speed chase, the deputy eventually blocked the buggy with his car, but the buggy hit the squad car.
The person operating the horse and buggy was identified as Nathan Miller, who took a breathalyzer test and registered a score of 0.063%, according to police.
Miller was arrested and charged with driving under the influence.
