SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. — A Florida woman is facing child-neglect charges after deputies say she let a 7-year-old boy drive a vehicle, then posted a video of it to social media.

Kwaniqua Glenn, 34, is accused of recording the boy driving while she was in the passenger seat.

The Seminole County Sheriff’s Office was alerted to the video on social media by a school resource officer who saw it and recognized the child as a student at the school to which he’s assigned, deputies said. They said she met the boy at his bus stop and told him to get behind the wheel and drive through the neighborhood.

Investigators think the driving incident happened sometime around Sept. 20. Based on viewing the video, deputies estimate that the boy drove for about .3 to .4 mile at an average speed of about 29 mph during one .2-mile stretch.

No property was damaged and no one was injured.

Glenn was arrested Thursday morning and was charged with child neglect. She bonded out of jail late Thursday night.
