ROCKINGHAM, Vt. (AP) -- One traffic stop netted two drunk-driving arrests in Vermont after police say a backseat passenger jumped in the driver's seat.

State police say they stopped a car early Sunday on Interstate 91 in Rockingham after it was clocked doing 106 mph.

Authorities say they got driver Erik Polite out of the car before passenger Leeshawn Baker took his place behind the wheel and put the car in gear.

Police breath tests put Polite's blood-alcohol content at .19 and Baker's at .25. Both are charged with driving under the influence, gross negligent operation and drug possession.

Polite is 35 and Baker is 34. Both men are from Flushing, New York.

They were jailed in lieu of bond. It was not immediately known if they have lawyers.
