In case out of Connecticut that could have dramatic ripple effects regarding legal responsibility, two 17-year-old boys have been arrested for allegedly allowing a friend to drive drunk.
“Seventeen-year-old Jane Modlesky was driving alone in Glastonbury, Connecticut when she crashed the SUV she was driving into a tree in July and was killed,” reports CNN’s Pamela Brown.
“Her blood alcohol level, according to police, was .27, three times the legal adult alcohol limit.”
After a thorough investigation, police arrested two of the four teenagers who were driving with Modelsky– holding them accountable for allowing her to drive drunk, and charging them with reckless endangerment.
Agent James Kennedy of Glastonbury Police says, "These two juveniles knew that she was intoxicated, knew she shouldn't have been driving and allowed her to drive"
“Glastonbury police say the two teens were the last to get out of the car, leaving Modelsky to get behind the wheel and drive herself off. She drove only half a mile before crashing,” Brown reports.
