SPARTA TOWNSHIP, Pa. (TCD) — Four people were arrested earlier this month for allegedly driving a horse and buggy carriage while drunk.

According to a release report, on June 17 at 7:06 p.m., a Pennsylvania State Police trooper pulled over the horse and buggy after noticing that “multiple Amish juveniles were riding unsafely” in it. The trooper reportedly noticed the occupants had been drinking alcohol.

A 20-year-old male was reportedly driving the horse and buggy and was charged with DUI/underage drinking. Another 20-year-old male and two 17-year-old males were also charged with underage drinking.

None of the suspects were named, but the release noted all four arrestees were runaways.
