Two Amish men caught drinking while driving buggy flee Ohio deputies
POSTED 7:43 PM, SEPTEMBER 17, 2019, BY TRIBUNE MEDIA WIRE


NORTH BLOOMFIELD, Ohio – Police officers often say no traffic stop is routine and there was nothing routine when a deputy pulled over an Amish buggy early Sunday morning in North Bloomfield, Ohio.
The deputy was on patrol in the heart of Trumbull County's Amish community when he spotted a buggy uniquely outfitted with a large stereo system on Donley Road, WJW reports.
According to his report, he saw two Amish men drinking inside the buggy, a 12-pack of beer on top of the vehicle.
When the deputy attempted to stop and question the two men about drinking and driving, they jumped out of the buggy and ran, disappearing into a heavily wooded area on the side of the road. According to the report, the horse pulling the buggy took off running, and the deputy gave chase, eventually catching up with it a short distance away.
