It was confirmed back in February that Amish Mafia would follow up its ratings success first season with a second season that’s started filming already in Lancaster, PA. And it would appear that in addition to John Freeman Schmucker’s return as confirmed by his lawyer, “Lebanon” Levi Stoltzfus will return and a new cast member will be added as one of his supposed henchmen.
ArchangelInvestigations.com exclusively confirms the addition of a new mafia member, “Caleb,” during season two episode one. Adding that his full name is Caleb Isaac Meyer and he will be “tasked with minor assignments” on the show that’s already been caught faking scenes of racketeering and faking destruction of property. Meyer’s defunct MySpace accounts confirm his location as Ronks, PA, and his age as 24-years-old (note: the above is the same mug shot featured on Amish Mafia’s special episode during which Meyer is introduced, Amish Exorcism).
The website notes, “Meyer’s most serious offense… occurred in 2007 when he was 18 years old. He was involved in traffic accident which caused serious injury to one of the occupants of a horse and buggy while he was driving a dump truck on the Old Philadelphia Pike. The impact was serious enough to kill the horse instantly. Fortunately, the woman who received serious head injuries survived, no thanks to Caleb Meyer. Meyer was charged with a felony [because he] fled the scene of the accident and drove away. Eventually [he] called his [father]. The elder Meyers came to the scene to talk to officers and eventually managed to coax his son to return to the scene and face the music. According to police investigators, ‘the teen was visibly distraught” when he returned to the scene.”
And there are local reports from July 2007 that appear to confirm the charges.
LancasterOnline.com reported Jul 04, 2007 “Three relatives riding in a horse-drawn buggy were injured… when a dump truck collided with their buggy in Leacock Township, investigators said. The driver of the truck, 18-year-old Caleb Meyer of Ronks, fled the scene after the crash, only to return within an hour, investigators said. By that time, medics and firefighters had taken the three people in the buggy, a Ronks woman [Marian Stoltzfoos], 22, her [10-month-old] daughter, and 12-year-old brother to Lancaster General Hospital. The two children were ejected from the buggy, Intercourse Assistant Fire Chief Leon Yoder said. The horse was killed on impact, Yoder said… Stoltzfoos sustained severe head trauma in the crash and was unconscious during the ride to LGH, investigators said. ‘She had gotten the worst of it,’ Yoder said. ‘She was not breathing, but had a strong pulse.’ The children also were taken to LGH, but their injuries didn’t appear to be life-threatening, Yoder said. [They were] treated and released.”
On Jul 11, 2007, LancasterOnline.com added, “Investigators charged a Ronks teenager Tuesday with leaving the scene of a vehicle crash that injured three occupants of a horse-drawn buggy. Caleb Isaac Meyer, 18, was driving his father’s dump truck on Old Philadelphia Pike in Leacock Township when he crossed the centerline and struck the horse and buggy nearly head-on about 9 a.m. July 3, police said.”
