together with

together with
 , along with
 With in both expressions is a preposition, not a conjunction, and therefore does not govern the verb.
 This sentence is wrong: "They said the man, a motor mechanic, together with a 22-year-old arrested a day earlier, were being questioned" (London Times). Make it "was being questioned."
