East Lampeter Township – December 6, 2009. The local police department responded to a buggy disturbance Sunday night in East Lampeter Township. Apparently, Elmer Stoltzfoos Fisher had a few too many drinks before boarding his horse and buggy. Fisher was observed navigating his cart slowly and veering over the center lane divider. When the police approached the out of control cart they observed Fisher sleeping with the horse reins in hand.
During the DUI investigation it was determined Fisher smelled of alcohol, had the usual bloodshot eyes and demonstrated others signs of impairment. Fisher was arrested for DUI and processed. He provided a breath sample of 0.18 which is well double the Pennsylvania legal limit of 0.08.
I am unfamiliar with the laws of Pennslyvania but in Washington State you must be operating a motor vehicle to be charged with DUI.
