[BRANDON, Florida — A man was arrested on child neglect charges after his girlfriend's 11-year-old daughter crashed an SUV into a water pipe at a Hillsborough County church.
Deputies say Donald Leet, 37, told them he let the child drive because he had a glass of wine with dinner Tuesday evening, and his driver's license was suspended. The child told deputies Leet was teaching her to drive.
When deputies arrived at First Baptist Church of Brandon, water was shooting 50-feet into the air. Officials say the girl and her 7-year-old sister were screaming, but no one was injured.
Leet, of Apollo Beach, berated the deputies, calling them "dumb," and "an illiterate Southerner."]
