Don Juan Glasgow, 24, of Campden Park, was granted bail in the sum of $25,000 when he appeared at the Serious Offences Court on a motor vehicle manslaughter charge. He was not required to plead, as the charge is an indictable one. Glasgow was ordered to surrender his travel documents and report to the police on Mondays and Fridays. The matter was adjourned to April 7 for a Preliminary Inquiry.

At about 2p.m. on Boxing Day, December 26th, George, along with Glasgow and Jasrick Matthias, went driving on the Leeward side of the Island. When they got to the Pembroke Stretch, on their way from Campden Park, it is said that Glasgow lost control of the vehicle, which then collided with a retaining wall. George suffered multiple injuries and later died at the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital.

The two others received minor injuries.
