An early Sunday morning traffic stop in the village of Bath led to a husband and wife being charged with endangering the welfare of a child.
Village Police pulled over a car around 2 a.m. for operating without any lights. An investigation revealed the car was being driven by someone under the age of 16. 39 year old Michael Knowles and 35 year old Cindy Knowles, both of Bath, were inside the car but were allegedly too intoxicated to drive. A second individual under the age of 16 was also a passenger in the vehicle.
The Knowles’ were also charged with permitting unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle. Both will appear in court next week
