GLADWIN COUNTY, Mich. (WPTA21) - Four underage men are facing a slew of charges after a Michigan Sheriff's Department says they were drinking and driving a horse and buggy Sunday afternoon.
Just before 4 p.m. Sunday, a concerned motorist called 911 to report four men riding in a horse and buggy near Beaverton Road and Bard Road in Beaverton Township.
The group was reportedly intoxicated, and they were tossing beer cans out of the buggy onto the road.
Deputies tracked them down and pulled the buggy over.
The four men initially gave police false information about their ages, and refused to tell authorities their names.
Deputies found several opened and unopened containers of alcohol inside the buggy, and police said all four of the men were under the influence of alcohol.
Levei J. Mast, 20, Andrew B. Zook, 19, Joseph S. Miller, 20, and Joseph Troyer, 19, were all arrested and charged with obstruction of justice, disorderly person and issued civil infractions for minors in possession of alcohol.
The group was taken to the Gladwin County Jail and given a $3,500 bond.
