When a Southampton teenager was pulled over Monday and found to be driving with a suspended registration and in possession of marijuana, her mother made the mistake of driving to the scene in a vehicle that also had a suspended registration, according to police.
Southampton Village police said that a 19-year-old woman was being arrested at 11:46 a.m. Monday when her 49-year-old mother showed up. Not only did the mother's car have a suspended registration, the mother had a suspended license, police said.
Both women were charged with driving with a suspended registration, a misdemeanor. The daughter was additionally charged with unlawful possession of marijuana, a violation, and the mother was additionally charged with unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle in the third degree, a misdemeanor.
They were released to appear in court on a later date, police said.
The women's identities are being withheld because Southampton Patch does not publish the names of defendants when the top charge is a misdemeanor suspension.
