ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. (AP) — A Florida mother has been charged with child neglect after instructing her 7-year-old son to get behind the wheel of her car and drive on a public street through their neighborhood in suburban Orlando.
The Seminole County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement that 34-year-old Kwaniqua Glenn was arrested Thursday.
She also faces a charge of allowing an unauthorized person to drive a motor vehicle.
Seminole County Sheriff’s Office investigators say Glenn met her son at a bus stop earlier this month, instructed him to get behind the wheel and then filmed him from the passenger seat as he drove about a third of a mile at an average speed of 28 miles per hour.
No one was injured and no property was damaged.
Glenn couldn’t be reached for comment.
