Kentucky man charged with DUI for wrecking horse and buggy


Rueben Yoder was busted for drunkenly driving his buggy in Kentucky.

A Kentucky man driving a horse-drawn buggy allegedly sideswiped a car on Tuesday night.

Rueben Yoder, 34, was charged with driving a nonmotorized vehicle while under the influence, nine counts of first-degree wanton endangerment and one count of first-degree criminal mischief.

His wife and seven children ranging from 9 months old to 12 years old were also in the buggy at the time of the accident which damaged the front bumper and driver’s side of the car involved. No injuries were reported.

Yoder initially told cops that one of his children was driving the buggy, but the children denied it and told them it was their father.

Cops on the scene noted Yoder’s bloodshot eyes, slurred speech and the smell of alcohol, according to a police citation.

He failed field sobriety tests and consented to a breath test which indicated the presence of alcohol. He was then taken into custody and transported to the Warren County Regional Jail after refusing a blood test at a local hospital.
