Raleigh, N.C. — State law enforcement agents made an arrest Friday night in connection with the wreck that killed 17-year-old Millbrook High School junior Elizabeth Molloy two weeks ago.
Anthony Du Juan Geter, 21, of 7101 Sandy Forks Road Apt. 3A, has been charged with purchasing alcohol for Garrett Prince on the night he lost control of his 1999 Jeep and wrecked on Rainwater Road.
According to his arrest warrant, Geter purchased a 1.75-liter bottle of Bacardi Dragon Berry flavored rum from a Wake County ABC store on Sandy Forks Road with money given to him by Prince and Molloy.
Molloy, the passenger in Prince's vehicle, died as a result of injuries she sustained in the Jan. 7 wreck.
Prince, of 11004 Coachmans Way, was charged with felony death by motor vehicle, driving while impaired, provisional DWI, careless and reckless driving, having an open container of liquor, speeding and possession of marijuana.
Witnesses said they smelled a strong odor of alcohol coming from Prince's Jeep, according to an arrest warrant, and officers found marijuana and open containers of wine in the vehicle.
A wreck report states that the Jeep was traveling 75 mph in a 30-mph zone when it crashed into a tree on Rainwater Road.
Several sources told WRAL News that the teens were at a party with other Millbrook High students on Friday night before the crash.
If convicted under North Carolina law, Geter could face a fine of as much as $1,000 and be sentenced to up to 150 hours of community service. He could also be held liable in civil court for a death that resulted from his actions.
