Two Broome County teens are facing a number of charges after New York State Police stopped a vehicle on Pennsylvania Avenue in the Town of Owego shortly before 11:30 Monday night for not having a working plate lamp.

Troopers say passenger, 17 year old Macie Farr is charged with resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and unlawful possession of marijuana.

The driver, 19 year old Elija Burnside of Binghamton is charged with aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, unlawful possession of marijuana and traffic offenses.

The trooper smelled marijuana in the vehicle and found about seven grams while a computer check showed Burnside had several suspensions on his driver license.

Authorities say when they tried to arrest both, Farr began to scream and resisted being handcuffed.

The teens are due in Owego Town Court in July.
