Suspect Arrested in

Stepson's Jet Ski Death

3/1/2013 9:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0301-Jeffrey-Simon-Hubbard-tmz-mugThe jet ski operator who allegedly ran over Usher's stepson in a Georgia lake last summer -- killing the 11-year-old boy -- was arrested this morning ... TMZ has learned.

Jeffrey Simon Hubbard was indicted on Thursday by a Grand Jury in Hall County, Georgia.

The District Attorney tells TMZ Hubbard was indicted for Homicide by Vessel, Serious Injury by Vessel, as well as Reckless Operation of a Vessel.

TMZ broke the story ... Tameka Raymond's son, Kile Glover, suffered severe brain injuries on July 6th when police believe Hubbard's jet ski collided with him. Kile was on an inflatable raft at the time of the accident. Kile was vacationing with his father, Ryan Glover, at the time of the incident.

Kile was hospitalized, and never regained consciousness. He died on July 21. 

Hubbard is currently being held without bail.

We're told he'll be in front of a judge this weekend ... when a decision will be made on whether he can be released on bail.

This article has nothing to do with Usher . The reason why they keep using his name is so you cam read it. It was a accident . Tameka Foster just start pursing this as a criminal case so she can get Kyle law passed for better boating regulation. Usher has his to boys. This child is Tameka and Ryan son not Usher stepson there no longer married he has no ties or obligation to her unless he wants to .

So sad. RIP to the little boy. But unfortunately when you are on choppy water with lots of boaters and jet ski'ers there's no such thing as brakes. And on jet ski's there's no reverse.

It wasn't just an accident. He was driving recklessly and speeding. I don't know if he was drinking too. When you do that in a car and crash into someone and they die what happens? Why would it be any different? Stop saying oh poor gut! Trumped up charges .. etc. . You don't know.

That is really sad. He's a family friend so I'm sure it was devastating for him already. Now this.

Just because u divorce someone doesn't stop u from claiming the kid Usher helped raise him so its still his stepson im pretty sure Usher feels the same way

There is no such thing as an accident. If he was driving recklessly or not paying attention, then it's homicide.

If usher had any compassion he wouldn't have taken Temeka's other sons by him from her to avoid child support (sad)
