The fool! Moment when a ‘drunk’ Amish man, 21, is caught sleeping behind the wheel of a BUGGY, only to wake up after crashing into a policeman who blocked the road to stop him

  • Body camera video captured the moment Ashtabula Sheriff’s deputies found twenty-one-year-old Nathan Miller in Orwell at around 2:43 a.m. Saturday.
  • Police responded to reports Miller’s buggy was ‘all over the road’
  • ‘Hey, hey, wake up! There’s a can of Bud Light in there and he’s passed out. We have a drunk Amish passed out in a dune buggy,” said Sheriff’s Deputy Mike Talbert.
  • Miller has been arrested and charged with operating a vehicle under the influence. He is scheduled in court on May 26.

An Amish man who police say was drunk was filmed passed out behind the wheel of his moving dune buggy, which only stopped when it crashed into a police roadblock.

Body camera video captured the moment Ashtabula Sheriff’s deputies found twenty-one-year-old Nathan Miller in Orwell at around 2:43 a.m. Saturday.

Police had responded to reports that Miller’s buggy was “all over the road”, foxnews reported for the first time.

‘Hey, hey, wake up!’ Deputy Sheriff Mike Talbert can be heard saying when he first sees the rogue buggy.

As Miller steps forward to the sound of hooves, Talbert speaks into his radio and says, ‘There’s a can of Bud Light in there and he’s passed out. We have a drunk Amish who passed out in a dune buggy.

After a low-speed chase, Talbert tried to block the road and the buggy crashed into the officer’s car.

“I’ve got him in custody,” Talbert said. ‘Nope, ignore it, he just crashed it into my car.’

It was only then that a very confused Miller woke up and finally regained control of his buggy.

Miller has been arrested and charged with operating a vehicle under the influence. He is scheduled to appear in court on May 26.

Penalties for operating horse-drawn vehicles while intoxicated are generally lighter than those imposed on drunk drivers, and Miller is likely to be fined.

Ashtabula Sheriff’s deputies responded to 911 reports that Miller’s buggy was all over the road.

Miller’s horse rides past Talbert, who then tells a companion that he saw a can of Bud Light inside the buggy and Miller passed out behind the wheel.

“He’s going home, the horse knows how to get home,” Talbert says with a laugh as he jumps into his vehicle.

The deputy then follows the buggy and describes the situation through his radio.

“He just turned east on Bogue and I yelled at the guy as he passed,” Talbert says in body camera footage of the incident.

“There’s a can of Bud Light sitting in the damn buggy and I hit the side of the buggy and yelled at the guy. He’s passed out. He’s slumped over.

Talbert walked past the buggy, then parked his car to block the road.

Three people are then seen approaching the scene, and Talbert asks them to restrain the horse so it doesn't keep crashing into the officer's car.
