Police nab 13-year old speeding at 2 a.m.

A Vermont man was arrested Friday morning after he was found to be a passenger in a vehicle driven by a 13-year old boy.

Michael R. Mullady, 21, of West Rutland, Vt., was charged with first degree reckless endangerment, a felony, after a vehicle he and the boy were in was stopped around 2 a.m. on Route 4 for traveling 46 mph in a 30 mph zone.

Mullady was also charged with endangering the welfare of a child for letting an underage, unlicensed child drive, and obstructing government administration. A third passenger, a 14-year old boy, was also present in the vehicle.

Police said the 13-year old boy provided officers with the name of a 19-year old man who was not present after the vehicle was stopped. Mullady supported the boy’s claims and police later determined the boy was not who he claimed.

The 13-year-old was not charged because anyone younger than 16 years of age in New York State cannot be charged with non-criminal violations.

Both the 13 and 14-year-old boys were released to a parent.

Mullady was arraigned in Fort Ann Town Court and sent to Washington County Correctional Facility for lack of bail.

Whitehall Police Patrolman Richard Rizzo and David Gebo made the arrest.
