Cops: Driver accused of killing teen was drunk

A woman suspected of killing a teenage bicyclist with her car Saturday was found to be over the legal limit for alcohol, a Tucson police spokesman said.

Glenda L. Rumsey, 42, of East Migratory Place, near Broadway and Houghton Road, had a blood-alcohol content that exceeded .08 percent, the legal limit in Arizona, Sgt. Mark Robinson said.

Robinson would not give the figure or say whether Rumsey’s BAC would qualify her for an extreme DUI charge.

Rumsey faces charges of second-degree murder, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and leaving the scene of a fatal collision, Robinson said.

Jose Rincon Jr., 14, was hit Saturday evening while pedaling with a friend on the shoulder of East Broadway near Harrison Road, Robinson said. He died later that night in a hospital.

Rumsey posted $50,000 bail Sunday and was released, a jail records clerk said.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
