An Amish man was arrested for DUI while behind the reins of a horse and buggy in Pennsylvania. Witnesses said that the buggy was going in the middle of the road. Police say he was sleeping while holding the reins of the horse. Police reported that the man had the strong odor of alcohol on his breath, had red/bloodshot eyes, and had a .18 blood alcohol level.

If you are arrested for DUI in Jacksonville, the state attorney’s office has to prove that you were in actual physical control of a motor vehicle. Even though DUI arrests typically occur in cars, under Florida case law, you could drive under the influence on a bicycle or a boat. If the mode of transportation travels on the road, the Florida courts would probably hold that you could commit a DUI on it.
