Amish Teen Led Police on Horse and Buggy Chase

In this short daily blotter post, CBS News' Crimesider posted about an Amish teen who led police on a mile-long horse and buggy chase:

Deputies said they spotted Detweiler ignoring the stop sign last week. According to police, the teen then led them on a chase that ended when he lost control on a sharp turn into a driveway and overturned the buggy into a ditch. He then fled on foot.

Two other Amish men later helped the deputies free the horse and pull the buggy from the ditch.

No word on whether the horse was a white Bronco.

I learned three interesting nuggets of knowledge:

1) Running a stop sign when on a horse and buggy is a crime
2) Crime blotter bloggers have quite a bit of fun writing their posts
3) You can be charged with "overdriving" and animal
