    Which President was arrested while in office, for running over a woman with a horse?


    Franklin Pierce was the 14th president of the United States, serving from 1853 to 1857. Pierce was arrested while serving as president for running down a woman while on horseback. Pierce was never convicted of a crime connected to the incident, due to what the courts described as insufficient evidence. Franklin Pierce, the youngest man to be elected president to that point, chose to affirm his oath of office on a law book rather than swear it on a Bible, as all his predecessors except John Quincy Adams had done.

    A Koran would eventually take the place of a law book, because Liberal Democrats HATE the Bible. (see U.S. Representative Keith Ellison, Mn)

    Interesting... I would have bet money that a President has never been arrested while in office.

    I think I remember hearing that Ulysses Grant was arrested several times while he was President. Always for speeding (in a horse and buggy, I believe) That's what I call a Prez

    NEO.....We got that same question today in our Email Trivia. I would have answered if you hadn't posted it first. Good daily fun for my wife and I. Thanks.

    P.S. For the Dem Liberals, it wasn't the Koran, but rather the DNC Talking Points Manual with Ellison's Photo in the center as WANNABE....but not close enough....DNC Chairman.

    Well, truth be known, that's where I got it from...I'm batting .715 or so..67% overall. I like that pick @ my brain, along with the brain candy stuff.
