(Newser) – You shouldn't drink and drive—no matter what kind of horsepower you're riding. A 17-year-old Amish boy driving a buggy in upstate New York led deputies on a short chase after they saw him with an open can of beer, reports the Buffalo News. Once stopped, deputies say he was belligerent. Among the charges: Resisting arrest, unlawful possession of alcohol because he's under 21, and insufficient tail lamps.
