Man Violates Pre-Trial Program by Using Fake Male Appendage to Cheat Test

Broward County, FL - A man's been arrested for violating the terms of his pre-trial services program by wearing an artificial male appendage while submitting to a drug test.

Shannon Vincent Young, who was arrested on DUI manslaughter charges in 2021, has been arrested again after he wore an artificial penis while taking a drug test.

According to the Broward Sheriff's Office, Young violated the terms of his pre-trial services program by wearing an artificial penis while submitting to a random drug test.

The man claimed that he was using his own urine while wearing the device, but an additional test was administered, and Young's urine tested positive for marijuana.

He now faces a charge of violating the terms of the pre-trial services program.

Young's original charges stem from a fatal crash that occurred on November 29, 2020 in Hillsboro Beach.

According to deputies, Young was driving north in a white 2015 Mazda 6 around 4:52 a.m. when he struck Joseph Pugni, who was riding his bicycle north along the paved shoulder.

Pugni was forced off his bike and onto the roadway, and Young fled the scene northbound.

Pugni was transported to Broward Health Medical Center, where he later died.

Following the crash, BSO deputies located and stopped Young's vehicle without incident.

Once stopped, Young cooperated with the investigation and told investigators he had been drinking cognac earlier in the evening and didn't remember being involved in a crash because he had the music on loud and was "vibing."

On May 19th, 2021, Young was charged with one count of leaving the scene of a crash involving death, two counts of DUI manslaughter, one count of driving without a license causing death, and two counts of DUI causing property damage.

According to the state's motion for pretrial detention, Young had a blood-alcohol level of .116 g/dL, and his blood contained THC at the time of his arrest.

Jail records show that Young was taken back into custody on Tuesday and is being held at the Broward County Main Jail without bond.
