- A Florida woman was arrested this week after cops say she allowed a 7-year-old boy drive her car.

What's more, Kwaniqua Glenn, 34, of Altamonte Springs, allegedly recorded the boy from the passenger seat and then posted the video to social media.

In a statement posted to Facebook Wednesday, the Seminole County Sheriff's Office said it was made aware of the video by a school resource officer.

The video showed the child sitting alone in the driver’s seat of the vehicle as an adult female passenger made comments while filming him driving, the statement said.

The child was not wearing a seatbelt.

Cops say the investigation revealed that the female suspect met the child at his bus stop and told him to get behind the wheel before instructing him to drive through the neighborhood.

The child was allegedly driving at an average speed of about 28 miles per hour for approximately a third of a mile. No property was damaged and no one was injured as a result of the incident.

Police identified the suspect as Kwaniqua Glenn. She was arrested Thursday morning and charged with child neglect and allowing an unauthorized person to drive a motor vehicle.

Glenn’s relationship to the boy was not immediately clear. A Facebook account associated with her name says Glenn is a native of Altamonte Springs who now lives in Chicago.

A Facebook message to Glenn did not get an immediate response Friday afternoon.
