POSTED: March 2, 2013 6:33 p.m.

No bond was set Saturday for an Atlanta man charged in the Lake Lanier boating accident that killed an 11-year-old boy in July.

Jeffrey Simon Hubbard was arrested Friday by Department of Natural Resources officers after being indicted Thursday by a Hall County grand jury on charges of homicide by vessel in the first degree, reckless operation of a vessel, unlawful operation of a personal watercraft, boat traffic violation and serious injury by vessel.

Sgt. Stephen Wilbanks, spokesman for the Hall County Sheriff’s Office, said Saturday that after his first court appearance, Hubbard is still being held at the Hall County Jail and a date has not been entered for a bond hearing.

Kile Glover suffered severe brain injuries on July 6 when authorities believe Hubbard’s personal watercraft collided with the boy, who was on an inflatable raft with a teenage girl, who was injured in the incident. Glover was son of entertainer Usher’s ex-wife Tameka Raymond, and Ryan Glover, an executive for Bounce TV.

Law enforcement officials said Hubbard was in violation of the “100-foot law,” which mandates that drivers of boats and personal watercraft not operate at more than idle speed within 100 feet of a sitting object or a person in the water.
