Florida hit-and-run suspects allegedly involved in a crash that killed two children and injured four were seen on video being led out of a courtroom after an outburst in the courtroom.
Sean Charles Greer, 27, was arrested Tuesday after police said physical evidence from the Wilton Manors crash site led detectives to him. He was taken out of the courtroom after apparently objecting to the case. The South Florida Sun-Sentinel called his appearance “short but dramatic.”
“We appear to have lost him for a moment,” Judge Joseph Murphy said during the videotaped hearing. Someone then said to Murphy, “Your honor, he stepped away. He did not want to come back before the judge.”
Greer allegedly confessed to his involvement in the crash. His public defender said his client suffers from asthma, depression and insomnia, the newspaper reported. Authorities said Kylie Jones, 5, and Andrea Fleming, 6, were killed in the hit-and-run. The driver of a 2009 Honda Accord reportedly swerved past a spinning Broward County Transit bus, drove up the sidewalk and plowed through the kids.
Greer fled the scene and his car was later located in Wilton Manors, a suburb of Fort Lauderdale, officials said. There was damage to the vehicle which was involved in the accident. The car’s front bumper was missing. It was found at the scene of the accident.
Greers Florida driver’s license has been suspended since 2016, prosecutors said. He has also been arrested, including for possession of hashish, petty theft and driving with a revoked driving license, dated to 2013.
