Police: Amish man found drunk, asleep in moving buggy

A slow-moving horse and buggy led to the drunk driving arrest of a local Amish man.
Elmer Stoltzfoos Fisher, 22, of Paradise, was found slumped over and asleep in a buggy that was moving very slowly in the first block of North Ronks Road on Sunday night. East Lampeter Township police received a call at 9:05 p.m. Sunday from off-duty Quarryville police officer Jesse Blank about the possible DUI. A car driven by Blank came up behind the buggy, which he said was moving at a walking pace. The horse was pulling the buggy along the road, straddling the center line. Sensing a problem, Blank stopped his car. His passenger, Nate Perry, got out and approached the buggy on foot. Stopping the horse, Perry found Fisher slumped over and asleep.
