Teen high on inhalants gets 10-day lockup, probation for crash hurting Hartland schools guard
A 16-year-old Livingston County boy who was high on inhalants when his vehicle struck a security officer in his school parking lot has been sentenced to 10 days in juvenile custody and probation.
The boy pleaded guilty Oct. 22 to operating a vehicle while intoxicated and causing injury. He was charged as a juvenile and was sentenced Monday to detention, probation, 200 hours of community service and counseling.
The Livingston County sheriff's department says that in May, the boy inhaled fumes from a household aerosol product and passed out.
Authorities say he hit 53-year-old Susan Hazzard outside Hartland High School in Hartland Township, crushing her spine and causing closed head injuries. She spent three months with a neck brace.
The Hartland schools have expelled him.
