WHITEHALL, N.Y. (AP) - A police officer who made an early-morning speeding stop in eastern New York found a 13-year-old Vermont boy at the wheel, leading to the arrest of the adult in the car.
Whitehall Police Chief Matt Dickinson tells the Glens Falls Post-Star the car was clocked doing 46 mph in a 30 mph zone just before 2 a.m. Friday in the Washington County town near the Vermont border.
He says 21-year-old Michael Mullady of West Rutland, Vt., and a 14-year-old were also in the car.
Mullady was charged with felony first-degree reckless endangerment and endangering the welfare of a child.
Dickinson says it isn't clear why the boy was driving.
Mullady was arraigned and jailed. Court officials weren't available to say if he has a lawyer.
Whitehall is 65 miles north of Albany.
