GLENVILLE, Pa. (WJZ) – Police say a Maryland man was so drunk after driving into a central Pennsylvania field that a farmer had to carry the handcuffed suspect out in the bucket of his tractor.
Southwestern Regional police Chief Greg Bean says Shawn Anthony Hott, of Boonsboro, Md., had to be pulled to safety after he was nearly run over by his own truck.
Bean said Wednesday that Hott, 36, was driving through fields Sunday night and fled police before nearly hitting a herd of cows in Glenville, about 30 miles south of Harrisburg.
Bean says Hott surrendered and collapsed behind his truck, which started to drift back toward him. Officer Bryn Lindenmuth pulled Hott away then needed the farmer to carry them back to his patrol car.
A phone listing for Hott could not be located Wednesday.
