TN teen faces charges for Fla. DUI crash killing Knoxville man

(WBIR) A 22-year-old from Knoxville was killed during his spring break vacation after officials say a teenager, also from Tennessee, ran into his scooter car in Panama City Beach, Fla. Sunday night.

Bruce George, 18 of Nolensville, Tenn. now faces DUI manslaughter charges. Authorities said George drove head-on into a scooter car driven by Brandon Beverly, 22, of Knoxville.

The News Herald of Panama City Beach reported the Beverly was ejected from the vehicle. Crews took him to the hospital where he later died.

A judge set George's bail at $100,000 on Monday, and police have said additional charges could be added. Panama City Beach said George's blood alcohol level was 0.159, which is nearly twice the legal limit in Florida.
