Mark Luswabi Sseremba Glenn, 18, was arrested yesterday afternoon after the vehicle he was driving ended up on its side in a Kenwood yard.
According to the arrest report, Glenn stated post Miranda that he had been driving and misjudged the turn. He reportedly said he did not know how fast he was going, but the Florida Highway Patrol trooper noted that the vehicle left the roadway while making the turn and hit a tree stump, causing it to overturn. The trooper reported that Glenn said the vehicle belonged to a friend’s parents, who later said he did not have permission to drive it. The trooper also reported that he observed about 40 yards of braking skid marks leading up to the crash, causing damage to the property owner’s yard.
A witness reported that he heard tires squealing and saw Glenn driving the vehicle at a speed he estimated around 50 mph in a residential neighborhood. He reportedly said that he saw the vehicle fail to negotiate the turn, strike the ditch, strike a large tree stump, then overturn onto the driver’s side.
The trooper reported that he smelled alcohol coming from Glenn’s breath, and Glenn reportedly admitted to drinking alcohol before the crash. Glenn reportedly performed poorly on field sobriety exercises, and his breath test samples were reported at .120 and .116.
Glenn has been charged with DUI, two counts of DUI with damage to property, and one count of driving without a valid license. He is being held on $6,000 bond.
