Man Charged In Amish Buggy Drive-By Shooting

Horse was killed by single bullet fired on Pennsylvania roadway

FEBRUARY 12--Police today announced charges have been filed against a Pennsylvania man in connection with the fatal drive-by shooting of a horse pulling an Amish buggy.

Timothy Antonio Diggs, 22, is facing seven misdemeanor counts, including reckless endangerment, cruelty to animals, and firing into an occupied vehicle, according to the East Lampeter Township Police Department.

The horse was pulling a buggy with five family members around 9 PM on November 24 when “an unknown type car traveling north passed the buggy.”

The buggy’s occupants, a married couple and their three young children, told investigators that they heard “a loud noise, described as sounding like a firecracker” as the vehicle passed.

Upon returning to their farm, the family discovered that the horse had been shot in the chest. The animal died before a veterinarian reached the family’s residence.

Diggs, seen in the above mug shot, has been jailed since cops executed a search warrant at his home in early-December. During that raid, officers located handguns and a motorcycle that had been stolen in two separate burglaries.

Police did not disclose whether one of the seized guns was used in the horse killing, nor did they reveal a motive for the shooting. (1 page)

KEYWORDS:
This is a another example of a misleading headline. It led me to think the Amish buggy driver was the shooter. This is a follow up to the article posted on FR in November when the shooting was first reported.

Funny, he doesn't look Amish. Wonder if he will be charged with a hate crime?

Kind of hard for the press to pretend that he’s a conservative extremist. But you never can tell!

Shooting into an occupied vehicle is not a felony? In some places cruelty to animals can be a felony.

... a motorcycle that had been stolen in two separate burglaries.

I'm sure there's an interesting story behind this.

I always loved the the laws in the OLDE WEST.
Horse thieves will be hanged on the nearest tree.
“Lonesome Dove”, Gus Mcrae, quote worth repeating “ Pick out a tree to hang you from, son “
The S.O.B. did steal the Amish family’s horse!

No doubt New York Mayor DeBozo is happy that this horse is dead.
