A suspect has been arrested in connection with the 2012 Jet Ski accident that killed Usher’s 11-year-old stepson.
Jeffrey Simon Hubbard was indicted on Thursday (February 28) by a Grand Jury in Hall County, Georgia on charges of Homicide by Vessel, Serious Injury by Vessel as well as Reckless Operation of a Vessel, according to TMZ.
Hubbard allegedly ran over Usher’s stepson, Kile Glover, with his Jet Ski, while he and a second victim were floating in an inner tube in Georgia’s Lake Lanier. Glover suffered traumatic head injuries that eventually led to the him being removed from support more than a two weeks after the accident.
Following the accident, police determined that drugs or alcohol were not involved in the accident, and Hubbard — who, according to several reports, was a friend of the Foster family — was not immediately charged with any crime. But now, he’s being held without bail, and will reportedly be brought before a judge this weekend, when a decision will be made on whether he can be released on bail.
Glover was the son of Usher’s ex-wife, Tameka Foster , and was vacationing with his father, TV executive Ryan Glover at the time of the accident. He was laid to rest on July 27 in Atlanta, following a service attended by many high-profile members of the city’s musical and political communities.
