Driver switches seat, two charged

JOHNSTOWN —A driver and his passenger switched seats before they could be stopped recently by city police, but both ended up being charged with aggravated unlicensed operation.

Police said the incident ended with charges filed at 1:34 p.m. Jan. 9 after a vehicle stop on Charles Street.

Capt. Eric Johnson said an officer on patrol noticed a car driven by Mark L. Miller Jr., 31, of 110 Miller Lane, who he recognized. He said Miller allegedly had a suspended license, so the officer attempted to pull over the vehicle. When it was finally pulled over, Johnson said Miller had “switched seats” with his passenger — Hali K. Anadio, 24, also of 110 Miller Lane.

Johnson said the officer determined that Anadio was also unlicensed.

Both Miller and Anadio were each charged with identical misdemeanor counts of third-degree aggravated unlicensed operation and suspended registration.

Both suspects were arraigned in City Court and sent to the Fulton County Jail in lieu of $500 bail each. A jail spokesman said Friday that Anadio has since been released, while Miller remained incarcerated.
