    Jeffrey Simon Hubbard was taken into custody by Georgia police on Friday morning amid allegations that he lost control of the water vehicle on July 6, 2012, striking young Kile Glover in the head as he sat on an inflatable raft.

    The accident left the child brain-dead. He never regained consciousness and died on July 21, 2012.

    Hubbard is also facing counts of serious injury by vessel and reckless operation of a vessel, reports TMZ. He is being held without bail and is expected to appear before a judge this weekend.

    In related news, Glover's mother, Usher's ex-wife, Tameka Raymond, is celebrating the passing of a boating bill named in her late son's honor.

    Georgia Senate Bill 136, also known as the Kile Glover Boat Education Law, will reduce the legal blood alcohol limit for boating or hunting and increase the penalties for those engaging in water activities while under the influence.

    The legislation, which will also require young people to pass a boating education course before taking charge of a personal watercraft, was approved by Georgia State senators in a unanimous vote on Friday and will go into effect July 1, 2014.
