Guam - A 16-year-old was arrested on charges of negligent homicide for the death of his passenger from an April fatal crash. The teen, whose name has been withheld pending a court hearing, was allegedly under the influence of alcohol when he drove a Nissan Altima off the road near the Talofofo Golf Resort and struck a concrete utility pole.
The crash resulted in the death of 16-year-old Zachery Leonen.
The Yona teen is confined at the Department of Youth Affairs on additional charges of DUI with injuries, reckless driving, underage consumption of alcohol and not having a valid driver's license. Police also charged four other minors for underage consumption of alcohol.
